The factors in favour of a rise in the Amundi share price:
First of all, Amundi's positioning in its sector of activity is of course an undeniable advantage. Indeed, the French company is currently the leading European player in the asset management sector, but also ranks tenth worldwide in this sector. This of course gives it a certain strength of negotiation and persuasion with its clients and a significant interest from investors around the world.
Another undeniable advantage of the Amundi group is the good distribution of its activities. Indeed, the company's activities are divided between savings solutions, which concern more than 100 million individuals worldwide and generate 26% of its revenues, and activities concerning investment solutions for institutional clients, which are close to a thousand and generate almost 74% of revenues. Thanks to this distribution, Amundi is less exposed to the institutional segment alone and can find other reliable sources of revenue.
Still on the subject of the Amundi group's activities, we also appreciate the good diversification of these, particularly in the field of real estate assets. This was made possible by the absorption of the Crédit Agricole subsidiary CAII.
Analysts and investors also highlight Amundi's international development strategy, which has been very smart and effective for many years, notably through the subsidiaries of Crédit Agricole and Société Générale and the creation of joint ventures in Asia as well as a large network of third-party distributors. Thanks to this approach, Amundi manages over 48% of its assets in Asia, 42% in Europe outside France and 10% in the rest of the world. Similarly, Amundi's assets under management are also spread over different types of assets, such as bonds (nearly 50%), cash (nearly 19%), equities (nearly 12%), multi-assets (nearly 12%) and structured and alternative products (nearly 7%).
Finally, another very reassuring element with regard to Amundi is the fact that this company is in a particularly healthy financial situation and is rated Investment Grade.
