First Quarter 2019 Results
"Societe Generale already benefited in Q1 2019 from the initial effects of the implementation of the measures announced at the time of the 2018 full-year results. We continued with the transformation of French Retail Banking, provided further evidence of the robust momentum in International Retail Banking & Financial Services and demonstrated Global Banking & Investor Solutions’ ability to rapidly adapt.
As a result of our determined actions, we saw a substantial increase in CET1 ratio in Q1 19, strengthening our ability to achieve the 12% CET1 ratio target as soon as possible.
All these advances illustrate the robustness of our business model and our ability to implement our strategic and financial plan despite an unfavourable European environment.”
