Leaflet - the French banking sector


The leaflet presents the banking industry, the organisation of the French banking system and the French banking federation.

 
French banking sector

France boasts six major banking groups which arose through a series of mergers and the strong momentum on the market over the past twenty years: BNP Paribas, Banque Populaire Group, Caisse d'Epargne Group, Crédit Agricole Group, Crédit Mutuel Group and Société Générale. La Banque Postale joined the list on January 1, 2006. In a context of high competition, these networks manage over 80% of the approximately 72 million current accounts throughout the country and most have developed extensive international operations.
