Having served clients in mainland China for over 125 years, Crédit Agricole CIB’s history in the country dates back to 1898. Since then, Crédit Agricole CIB has firmly established itself as a leading foreign bank in China.
Crédit Agricole CIB in mainland China operates since 2009 through a local incorporation, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Credit Agricole CIB (China) Limited with five branches – Shanghai (headquarters), Beijing, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Xiamen – and a representative office in Shenzhen. Since 2023, Crédit Agricole CIB has bolstered its onshore investment banking advisory capability with the creation of its dedicated wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE) - Credit Agricole (Beijing) Advisory Services Co., Ltd.
The local set-up comprises the Coverage & Investment Banking, Global Markets, International Trade & Transaction Banking, Corporate & Leverage Finance, and Financing & Client Services business lines.
In mainland China, the Crédit Agricole Group also offers asset management and specialised financial services through respectively, Amundi via the joint ventures with Agricultural Bank of China and Bank of China, and Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance via the joint venture with Guangzhou Automotive Group.
