Franco-German financial services group Oddo et Cie SCA and financial consultancy company Messier Maris & Associés are teaming up to actively participate in market issuance and the preparation of such deals.
The two companies said Jan. 31 that the exclusive partnership will have no impact on their ownership structures and will extend the reach of their U.S. businesses. The companies will initially target France, followed by Germany.
The partnership is expected to see Oddo et Cie benefit from MMA's access to executives at leading companies in France. MMA, in return, will benefit from the Oddo Group's research capabilities and its demonstrated expertise in structuring.
