Working in closer partnership with Fintech
With Fiduceo, Societe Generale became the first bank in France to acquire a fintech company. Since then, we have seen a multitude of partnerships, investments, experiments and exchanges, well beyond the borders of France. In 2015, Societe Generale's subsidiary Boursorama announced the acquisition of Fiduceo, a French online personal finance management firm. Thanks to the expertise of this fintech, we were able to develop an account aggregator firstly for the clients of Boursorama, and then for those of Crédit du Nord and Societe Generale.
