The presence of Societe Generale in the Middle East dates back to 1997 with the creation of a representative office, which led to the opening of a fully-fledged branch within the DIFC in 2007. Since then, the Group has expanded its client franchise and business flow throughout the region and the GCC in particular, serving its clients as a multi-specialist international investment bank.
Societe Generale Group’s services in the Middle East include corporate and investment banking services. Through an ambitious growth plan launched in 2014, we provide our corporate, financial institutions and sovereign clients access to both comprehensive on-the-ground capabilities and privileged access to the Group’s worldwide services, including a complete range of innovative solutions in our areas of expertise such as structured finance, hedging and investments on global markets, access to international primary debt and equity capital markets and post trade platforms.
With physical presence in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh, our approach favours long-term value creation, along with a total commitment to our regional clients’ needs and interests.
