Frédéric Oudéa, Chief Executive Officer of Societe Generale

Frédéric Oudéa's editorial

Our Group’s solid performance during this first quarter reflects the robustness of our diversified business model. Our net income amounted to EUR 924 million, an increase of 6.5% compared to last year.

We have a balanced business portfolio centred on our core businesses – French Retail Banking, International Retail Banking & Financial Services, Global Banking & Investor Solutions. This business model enables us to generate synergies between our different activities, and thanks to the diversification of our businesses and the regions in which we operate, maintain good results in a low – or even negative – interest rate environment.
