Quarterly selection of articles - Bulletin de la Banque de France, 2017, issue 45, 31-44

Abstract: French banks rank fourth worldwide in terms of international activity, with a strong geographical diversification. This diversification is mainly achieved though intra-group financing and the collection of deposits by a large network of local branches. The activity of French banks contributes positively to the balance of payments.
