ODDO SEYDLER wins multiple accolades

ODDO SEYDLER BANK AG’s analysts were recognised for their work in several categories at the 2015 StarMine Analyst Awards for Germany and Europe, the results of which were announced today. The Thomson Reuters StarMine Analyst Awards are presented each year for individual regions and sectors, and are regarded as the best barometer for the accuracy of sell-side analysts.

In the rankings, ODDO SEYDLER’s Ivo Visic was named as Europe’s best analyst in the Financial Services sector in terms of stock picking. Sector specialist Felix Parmantier came second in stock picking in the Real Estate category, again at European level.

In the awards for the German market, Martin Decot secured two podium places in the Consumer Goods & Services sector: he came second in earnings estimates and third in stock picking. On a cross-sector basis, his earnings estimates took seventh place. Property expert Felix Parmantier came third in stock picking in the Financial Services category. Igor Kim was runner-up for earnings estimates in the Health Care category.

Roger Peeters, Head of Research at ODDO SEYDLER, said he was pleased, and optimistic for the years ahead: “With our ongoing teambuilding as well as an even greater sector focus, we have every chance of featuring even more prominently in these awards in the years ahead”. René Parmantier, CEO of ODDO SEYDLER, added: “In conjunction with our French colleagues in Paris and Lyon, we give investors unrivalled insight into the economy of the two European core nations of Germany and France with coverage of some 400 stocks. We will be building up this expertise even more”.
