AllianceBernstein and Societe Generale announced the official launch of Bernstein, a joint venture creating a leading global cash equities and equity research business. The creation of Bernstein signals a historic milestone for both organizations, following the original announcement of the plan to form the joint venture in November 2022. Bernstein provides institutional investors, corporates and financial institutions with premier investment insights into North American, European and Asia Pacific equity markets, in addition to unparalleled liquidity access and leading global trading technology.

With Bernstein, Societe Generale will now offer its clients a comprehensive suite of global services across the equities value-chain, from world-class equity and macro research to leading agency execution, equity derivatives, prime brokerage, and equity capital markets offerings. The closing of the transaction has been approved by the relevant regulatory and antitrust authorities. The new brand capitalizes on the Bernstein name with a Societe Generale Group byline.
