Banque Populaire

BPCE Group, second-largest banking group in France


The BANQUE POPULAIRE network consists of 13 regional BANQUES POPULAIRES, CREDIT COOPERATIF and CASDEN BANQUE POPULAIRE. While they are part of the BPCE Group, the second-largest banking group in France, these banks operate autonomously in all areas of commercial banking and insurance and have a close relationship with their clients.

With its dedicated BANQUES POPULAIRES Ingénierie Financière (financial engineering) platform and the backing of a national network, BANQUES POPULAIRES is one of the major players in France for business transfers and one of the top long-term financial backers in deals with structured financing.

Thanks to its partnership with ADVISO PARTNERS, BANQUES POPULAIRES, leading bank for SMEs (38% penetration rate), complements its offer of expertise and advisory services in M&A and financial engineering to better serve and support its 138,000 entrepreneur clients in their key capital-intensive projects and the sale or transfer of their businesses.
