Nature of Business

Societe Generale is one of Europe’s leading financial services groups. Based on a diversified and integrated banking model, the Group combines financial strength and proven expertise in innovation with a strategy of sustainable growth. Committed to the positive transformations of the world’s societies and economies, Societe Generale seeks to build together with its clients, a better and sustainable future through responsible and innovative financial solutions. Active in the real economy for over 150 years, with a solid position in Europe and connected to the rest of the world, Societe Generale has over 131,000 employees in 66 countries and supports 26 million individual clients, businesses and institutional investors around the world (figures as of 31 December 2021). 

We have a presence in 12 locations across Asia Pacific. With our regional headquarters in Hong Kong – a core hub of the worldwide Societe Generale Group – we employ over 11,000 employees in the region. Our expertise in APAC ranges from corporate and investment banking to asset management, securities services, global transaction banking and specialised financial services.

We have been in Singapore since 1979 and Singapore is the base of our South East Asia hub. Our main business is Corporate & Investment Banking where we offer a wide range of services to our corporate, institutional and clients. We support our clients in accessing financing, diversifying their source of funding, and as a financial institution to contribute to an effective functioning of financial markets. Our teams act as intermediaries between the companies and states that need financing, and the investors looking for investment opportunities. This supports the entrepreneurial ecosystems that nurture growth sectors such as infrastructure and energy. We also provide investment solutions for asset managers, hedge funds, pension funds, insurance companies and others that manage savings.

In addition, we offer Global Transaction Banking where we support financial institutions and companies with their business activities such as Cash Management and International Trade Finance. From our Singapore office, we manage our representative offices located in the South East Asia region (Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam) as well as our Thailand office.
