We will scale up our development to support the energy transition of our corporate clients and institutional investors. We will continue to capitalize on our strong local presence and enhance our expertise in bank and bond financing as well as in transaction banking”, said Bertrand Cousin, member of the Management Board, Head of the Corporate and Investment Bank for corporates, public sector customers and institutions.
With more than 1,000 employees, the new division will expand its teams in specialised businesses and diversify its geographical footprint notably abroad.
