Crédit Lyonnais is a historic French bank. In the early 1990s it was the largest French bank, majority state-owned at that point. Crédit Lyonnais was the subject of poor management during that period which almost led to its bankruptcy in 1993. It was acquired by another French bank (Crédit Agricole) in 2003 and is now known as LCL (Le Crédit Lyonnais).
Crédit Lyonnais offers retail banking, investment and corporate banking and asset management services. The retail division operates a large network of branches and offers a comprehensive range of product and services to private individuals and business customers throughout France.
