said the joint venture with Bernstein Research Services would provide investment advice into the U.S., European and Asia-Pacific equity markets, alongside liquidity access and global-trading technology.

Societe Generale expects to take a 51% interest in the joint venture, with an option to reach 100% ownership after five years, with closure expected by the end of 2023, it said.

The business would be run as a long-term partnership under the Bernstein name, based in London, with Bernstein Research Services’ Chief Executive Robert van Brugge as head, Societe Generale said.

The deal would boost profitability, on a return-on-tangible-equity basis, of between 15 and 20 basis point from 2025, the Paris-based lender added.

“The merged entities would bring complementary strengths and a shared vision of a leading full-service equity brokerage business to support the needs of global investor and issuer clients,” the bank said.
