Societe Generale received once again numerous awards at the Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2019 ceremony, which was held on 10 July in London.

For the first time, Societe Generale was named best Bank in Africa for its Corporate Social Responsibility policy.

We are honoured to receive this award, which is recognition of the commitment of Societe Generale group and our staff to the positive transformations of the African continent. Contributing in a responsible and sustainable manner to the growth of Africa is one of the collective challenges which Societe Generale is dedicated to achieving. We have launched our Grow with Africa programme, which notably aims to provide greater support to African SMEs, who are at the heart of the economy and thereby encourage the development of innovative financial solutions specifically adapted to suit the needs of African markets, such as our e-wallet offer YUP. Furthering the development of local communities through financial inclusion and deploying more resources through microfinance is also at the centre of our vision” said Laurent Goutard, Head of International Retail Banking for Africa, the Mediterranean Basin & Overseas.

Societe Generale also received the following awards:
- Best Bank in Côte d’Ivoire, for the second consecutive year;
- Best Bank in Algeria, for the second consecutive year;
- Best Investment Bank in France.
