Our values

Team spirit, innovation, responsibility and commitment are the core values shared by all Societe Generale employees. These values are central to our vision of a responsible bank committed to serving its customers.

''In a complex and ever-changing banking environment, what will fundamentally and truly make the difference is our culture, the way we work together better and the way we embrace our values to serve our customers.''

Team spirit

In our changing world, our clients want a bank that is a responsible, trustworthy and agile partner. As a team, we meet their needs with our service-minded approach, enhanced by the diverse expertise and knowledge of all.


We strive to constantly improve our customers’ experience by working together to adapt our solutions, practices and relationships to tomorrow’s requirements, particularly by leveraging technological innovation. True to our entrepreneurial spirit, we are changing our ways of working by promoting sharing, experimentation and out of the box thinking. We learn from successes and failures alike.


As bankers, we contribute to the economic, social and environmental development of the economies in which we operate. We want to help our clients fulfil their projects’ potential, while paying attention to risks in all of their aspects. Our responsibility and ethical code involve rapidly satisfying our clients’ needs while preserving a long-term interest of all stakeholders and strictly complying with the rules of our profession. Our responsibility can also be seen in our courage to be accountable for our actions and decisions and to express our opinions transparently. Last of all, it means attaching as much importance to the way we achieve results as we do to the results themselves.


Our commitment derives from the continued satisfaction of our clients and the pride we have in our profession and our Group. Together, we strive daily to make a difference that contributes to the success of both our clients’ projects and ours. We promote involvement and professional accomplishment for all. We nurture relationships based on trust and mutual respect, both inside and outside the bank.
