Societe generale statement following the uk referendum

After the decision of UK citizens to leave the European Union, a long period of negotiations will begin to redefine the future of the economic relationship between the UK and the European Union. Societe Generale will closely follow the progress of the discussions and their consequences in the short, medium and long term.

Nevertheless, operating from a dual hub in Paris and London, the Group will adapt in time to best serve its international, European and UK customers. London will remain a major international financial center, and Societe Generale will continue its development in the UK.

Sluggish growth, before a wave of political risks

Global growth prospects remain sluggish in spite of reduced expectations of Fed tightening and a moderate recovery in oil price. Over the rest of 2016, we expect growth to continue to suffer from uncertainty over activity in the United States and the Chinese slowdown. The recovery is set to strengthen in the Eurozone but is unlikely to be enough to bolster inflation. And to make matters worse, political risks abound.

Working together to enhance the attractiveness of the Paris Financial Marketplace

Enhancing the attractiveness of the Paris Financial Marketplace. This was the aim of the “Welcome to Europe” conference I attended on 8 June, organised by Europlace and the Greater Paris Investment Agency in conjunction with the Ile-de-France region, the Paris City Hall and the Hauts de Seine department. I would like to share with you here the messages I put forward at the conference in my capacity as Chairman of the French Banking Federation.
Paris: Welcome to Europe! This unprecedented initiative by local authorities in support of the Paris Financial Marketplace sends out a strong signal. It is, in itself, a major sign of the interest in our activities, and the role they play in the region's economic development. The Paris Financial Marketplace provides a premium range of financial services at the heart of the eurozone. It has many strengths, but it must also rise to the challenge of enhancing its appeal. Because in the competition among financial marketplaces, we must be clear on this, Paris is in the position of a challenger.
