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

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