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.
