Cash Clearing & Correspondent Banking

More than 1,000 financial institutions rely on Societe Generale to process a wide range of international transactions such as: cash clearing in Euros and other currencies, commercial payments and account maintenance.

Euro & Currency Clearing

Thanks to us, you can have access to a global network dedicated to banks. As a leader in euro payments, Societe Generale is #1 in France and #3 worldwide on the Euro clearing for banks, serving your needs in every important currency. We process 5.8 million SEPA operations per day.

With our extended international network and a full and mature service offering designed for our clients, we are committed to help you grow your business efficiently.

We have access as a direct participant to all euro clearing systems (EBA & TARGET 2) as well as domestic clearing systems in several countries.
We act as intermediary for banks which are not members of a clearing system so they don’t have to invest in a direct connection.
 
Thanks to a solid and long-standing footprint in Eastern Europe and Western Africa, we are able to provide clearing in 5 currencies - EUR, CZK, MAD, PLN and RON - with strong capabilities in other currencies.

A world-class service provider offering cutting-edge technologies

To monitor your payments, we, via a unified portal, provides you with its web-based reporting tool, Webclear. It displays details, status and associated balances of each payment, with access to your invoices and other services to facilitate your day-to-day operations. Webclear also features the SWIFT gpi tracker, a SWIFT project we have been an early member of since 2015.
We are a SWIFT major player and takes part in all SWIFT initiatives including KYC registry, gCase, payment data quality and more.

Societe Generale and JP Morgan are partnering together along with other key banks, to develop a blockchain-based infrastructure to improve payment efficiency and service quality.

Societe Generale offers you two different Forex Solutions for your cross-border payments:

  • AutoFX helps you better control the FX applied to your outgoing cross-border payments.
  • PAYFX helps you make payments in more than 80 currencies through your euro account held at Societe Generale.

At Societe Generale, we master a wide range of services and geographies carrying all their own specificities.

Expert views
Since the development of bills of exchange by Venetian merchants and bankers, the practice of forfaiting has changed very little. However, this means of export financing is today at the dawn of a profound revolution, thanks to the digitalisation of international trade. An ideal context to make it more widely accessible?
