Largest French banks in 2016, by assets

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Largest French banks in 2016, by assets In 2017, the group Crédit Agricole was the main bank in France by number of customers. Also called “the green bank”, a nickname that invokes its ties to the French agricultural sector, Crédit Agricole had around 52 million clients in 2017. Coming second after the Crédit Agricole, the BNP Paribas’ number of customers amounted in 2017 to approximately 32 million people.
BNP Paribas and Crédit Agricole: among leaders in the Europe by assets

With around 2.34 trillion U.S. dollars in assets in 2018, BNP Paribas was the ninth largest bank in the world and, at the same time, the second largest bank in Europe. From a global perspective, Crédit Agricole remains close to BNP Paribas as the tenth largest bank in the world with assets totaling roughly 2.12 trillion U.S. dollars. Yet, based on market capitalization which means on the closing value of the outstanding shares, none of these two banks figured among the top major banks in the world in 2017.
