History and organisation

The bank has been present in Germany since 1948 through its predecessor institutions. Today its offices are located in Frankfurt and Hamburg (shipping finance). 

Crédit Agricole CIB is one of several Crédit Agricole Group entities present in Germany. The Group activities in Germany comprise – besides the corporate & investment banking – asset management, asset servicing, leasing & factoring, consumer finance and car finance. There is a strong co-operation between the regional Crédit Agricole Group entities and a combined structuring of transactions is a winning factor for the clients. 

 “Germany and Austria are, since decades, key markets for Crédit Agricole. Even in a volatile economic environment, we always supported our clients in a reliable and long-term oriented manner. Based on this understanding we see further growth potential as our clients need a global debt house like us to stem their own ambitious projects.”
