Dans cette note, nous revenons sur les raisons de la croissance rapide du secteur des paiements. En Bourse, il surperforme nettement le secteur de la technologie sur longue période et nous ne voyons aucune raison pour que cela s’arrête. Dans ce cadre, nous proposons une hiérarchie claire sur les valeurs européennes. Nous réitérons nos préférences (Achat) pour Worldline et Wirecard, maintenons notre opinion Neutre sur Ingenico et initions Adyen à Alléger. - >Un secteur che...

On balance, we recommend shareholders vote in favor. Item 4: Approve the Remuneration PolicyThe main concern with the Company's remuneration policy is that pa...

Actual incentive pay during the year was1.6 times the ECGS limit. Furthermore, variable remuneration is overly reliant on a single performance metric, benchmark profit before tax. A second performance criteria will be used in the coming year. We note that the Company has adjusted ...
