Societe General announced Wednesday it has established an alliance with a Japanese market analysis company to provide Asia equity research to institutional clients worldwide.

The joint venture with Japaninvest will amplify SocGen's wide-scale economic and macro coverage, especially with Japaninvest's growing analysis effort in Asian markets, the bank said in a statement.

SocGen said it will take advantage of its Japanese partner's research reports to together cover 25 percent of global market capitalization.

"This addition will substantially broaden our client offering and provide us with powerful new synergies in Asia and worldwide," said David Escoffier, SocGen's global head of equities and flow derivatives.

SocGen is one of the largest banks in the euro zone and its Corporate and Investment Bank, a partner in the joint venture, has operations in 33 countries.

Founded in 2002, Japaninvest operates as an independent equity research team and distributes market analysis to 150 institutes around the globe. It has analyst teams in London, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
