Because financial information is eaten like pastries, hot and at breakfast time, Anthony Bondain gets up at dawn to serve you the Morning Meeting every morning.
A financial journalist and stockbroker for more than two decades, an inimitable columnist and phlegmatic leader, he is editor-in-chief of ZoneBourse.

Every morning, the Zonebourse team compiles and summarizes key information concerning listed companies around the world, in order to have access to the main news at the start of the stock market day. The content includes a section on France and the other on the main international markets, in particular American companies and those from major European markets (UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain) and Asia-Pacific.
