Founded by a group of entrepreneurs in 1864 “to promote the development of trade and industry in France”, Societe Generale has fully embraced its role of supporting companies’ development. Today, Societe Generale continues to cultivate this entrepreneurial spirit as we build our future together.
Becoming the bank of the 21st century
A loyal bank constantly reinventing itself
For over 150 years, Societe Generale has been constantly innovating to better serve its customers. Our clients’ and our staff’s energy, passion and determination to progress have helped make Societe Generale the bank it is today and will continue to be tomorrow.
The Group’s head office at 29 boulevard Haussmann in Paris is a true architectural masterpiece, certain parts of which are now featured in the list of Historic Monuments.
In 2011, Societe Generale renovated this hundred-year-old building, parts of which are classified as historical monuments. A short film presents the contribution of various artisans to the renovation, all working under the supervision of National Heritage Architect Ursula Biuso.
