A strong and enduring commitment to South Korea

Over the past five decades, the Crédit Agricole Group has demonstrated a strong commitment to South Korea, consistently investing to support clients in their development in the world’s tenth largest economy. It presently offers corporate and investment banking services via Crédit Agricole CIB and asset management solutions via Amundi’s joint venture with the NongHyup Financial Group (NHFG).

Present in South Korea since 1974 with its first office located in Seoul, Crédit Agricole CIB positions itself as the first European bank and one of the pioneering foreign banks to open a full-fledged commercial banking branch.
