Since 2008, the banking industry has experienced an unprecedented surge in regulation to ensure its stability. Now the priority is to reconcile stronger prudential requirements with financing the economy successfully. With this in mind, the French Banking Federation sets out its six priorities and shares its recommendations.
French banks have done more to support businesses than banks in other European countries since the beginning of the crisis. Moreover, French banks support the economy in many ways, being one of the largest private sectors and private employers in France.
This booklet aims to answer different questions that can be asked about the French banking sector: robustness, financing the economy, bank-customer relationships, initiatives for low-income individuals, employment.
