Founded in Lille by a stockbroker who gave his name to the firm, Gilbert Dupont is now a 100% subsidiary of the Crédit Du Nord group. Like its shareholder, a federation of eight banks operating throughout France (Courtois, Kolb, Laydernier, Nuger, Rhône-Alpes, Tarneaud, Société Marseillaise de Crédit, Crédit du Nord), Gilbert Dupont enjoys a strong domestic foothold.
Established in Paris since 1991 in the form of a Société en Nom Collectif (general partnership), Gilbert Dupont benefits from the financial backing of its parent company (net banking income of €1.9bn and gross operating income of €0.7bn in 2013).
Gilbert Dupont operates on a human-scale and employs the same model as a SME, enabling it to offer a large degree of reactivity and adaptability when assisting its clients. The firm’s teams are motivated by a corporate spirit that is synonymous with commitment and responsibility. They share a common passion for Small & Midcaps. Gilbert Dupont’s organisation and processes are, across all of its activities, adapted to the unique challenges of Small & Midcaps.
The founding values of Gilbert Dupont are professionalism and the primacy of the client’s interests. Gilbert Dupont does not conduct any proprietary activity that is likely to influence its independence of judgement.
