The Inspection spent 4 months working in Sao Paulo within Societe Generale Brazil’s Corporate and Investment Banking activities.

  • pertinence of our presence in that country and the Group’s legitimate ambitions within the local context, on the commercial and risk front:
    • understanding of the local market and clients’ requirements, analysis of the distinguishing factors of our franchise,
    • review of the credit quality of our counterparties and definition of a risk appetite,
    • analysis of the impact of the 2011 liquidity crisis and the Lava Jato corruption scandal on our client franchise,
    • study of the impact of US and European regulations on our onshore market activities and construction of a business plan;
  • leverage to activate in order to adapt this strategy operationally:what target set-up do we want commercially, operationally and in terms of credit and compliance risk monitoring? What adjustments are required? How can we create synergies between the local platform and our Group franchises devoted to our major European clients (given that the level of foreign investments in Brazil remains very high)?
