The stories behind the creation of Indosuez Wealth Management, from the founding of the Compagnie Universelle du Canal Maritime de Suez in 1858 to the establishment of the Banque de l’Indochine in 1875, have been traced out in international ink. They evoke a time of opening up to the world across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
One of our forerunners, Crédit Lyonnais, took its first steps in Spain at about the same time: in Madrid in 1876, then Barcelona in 1888. These early roots are still here more than 100 years later, after the institution’s merger with Crédit Agricole Group, and their wealth management business is an integral part of our local platform.
For its part, Banque Indosuez, another of our antecedents, also had offices and branches in Spain starting in the 1970s. It developed its wealth management and stock brokerage businesses, especially by acquiring majority interests in local specialists such as MAPFRE Indosuez, a “Sociedad de Valores”, or Bancapital in 1992. Thanks to this latest acquisition, it was able to establish a new subsidiary: Banque Indosuez España, which focused on wealth management, stock brokerage and public debt.
In 1996, our story began anew when Banque Indosuez joined Crédit Agricole Group. Over time, the Group gradually combined its Wealth Management teams all over the world under the umbrella of Crédit Agricole CIB in order to establish our business: Indosuez Wealth Management.
Located in Madrid, as we have been since the beginning, we also provide local service through our offices in Seville, Valencia, Bilbao and San Sebastián, making it possible for our clients to take advantage of our full range of wealth management services. In this way, our story continues to unfold in the service of wealthy families and entrepreneurs in Spain.
