Our stakeholder structures are aligned... We are a direct subsidiary of Crédit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank, the group's corporate and investment banking arm, which in turn is owned by Crédit Agricole S.A.
Our operational structures are closely linked... Indosuez Wealth Management regularly collaborates with Crédit Agricole group's other business divisions which all have a potential service to offer our clients.
Since 1996, the year Indosuez joined Crédit Agricole group, our single shareholder, Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (CA CIB), has worked tirelessly to help develop our activities and foster greater collaboration and interaction with other business divisions. In November 2011, it created Indosuez Wealth Management, bringing together all of Crédit Agricole group’s Wealth Management entities under one roof.
The Group is one of the largest retail banks in Europe, as well as the number one provider of financing to the French economy and the number one insurer in France. It is also the first bancassurer in Europe, the first European asset manager and the world’s second-largest provider of green financing.
Thanks to its universal banking model - where close relationships between its proximity banks and the specialist expertise of its different business divisions are the key - Crédit Agricole group is able to assist and advise its customers with their projects in France and around the world: insurance, real estate, payments, asset management, leasing and factoring, consumer credit, corporate and investment banking.
Serving 52 million customers worldwide, it also stands out on account of its distribution model, multi-channel customer-focused banking, and the efforts of its 138,000 employees, who make Crédit Agricole the Customer Relationship-based bank.*
As well as serving the economy, it also stands out for its dynamic and innovative corporate social responsibility policy which is based on a pragmatic approach that is shared by the entire group and engages each employee.
Indosuez Wealth Management fully subscribes to the same premise and actively contributes to Crédit Agricole group's "FReD" initiative projects, notably those that embody the notion of respect.
