The Individual Shareholders Observatory
The objective of the Individual Shareholders Observatory is to rekindle the relationship between the French population and listed companies by sharing the benefits of sustainable and responsible investment with as many people as possible.
The Individual Shareholders Observatory aims to promote individual and employee shareholding in order to redirect French people’s savings towards the domestic production system, with a long-term approach, and to maintain decision-making centers in France. The Observatory seeks to overcome the portrayal of the stock market as an arena of speculation and respond to meet the desire of the French to contribute to the development of companies of all sizes in various forms (entrepreneurship, economy, collaborative, crowdfunding, etc.).
For the Individual Shareholders Observatory, the prerequisites for the emergence of a responsible and ethical capitalism through the revival of individual and employee shareholding are therefore in place. This is the impetus behind the European Commission, which, through several initiatives, has sought to encourage a long-term commitment from shareholders.
