The Consumer Ombudsman at the FBF

The Consumer Ombudsman at the Fédération Bancaire Française (FBF – French Banking Federation) is competent for disputes relating to services provided and contracts concluded in the field of banking operations (e.g. management of deposit accounts, credit operations, payment services etc.), investment services, financial instruments and savings products, as well as the marketing of insurance contracts.

The FBF Ombudsman will reply directly to you within 90 (ninety) days from the date on which she/he receives all the documents on which the request is based. In the event of a complex dispute, this period may be extended. The FBF Ombudsman will formulate a reasoned position and submit it to both parties for approval.

The FBF Ombudsman can be contacted on the following website: www.lemediateur.fbf.fr or by mail at:

Le Médiateur CS 151

The Ombudsman of the AMF

The Ombudsman of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF - French Financial Markets Authority) is also competent for disputes relating to investment services, financial instruments and financial savings products.

For this type of dispute, as a consumer customer, you have therefore a choice between the FBF Ombudsman and the AMF Ombudsman. Once you have chosen one of these two ombudsmen, you can no longer refer the same dispute to the other ombudsman.

What is Art Banking? - Expert Views

Art Banking is a Societe Generale Private Banking expertise. It encompasses a series of services provided by our partners from the art world to help you manage your artworks and collectibles.

What is Art Banking? - Expert Views

Art Banking is a complete range of services orchestrated by Societe Generale Private Banking to assist our clients in the management of works of art and collectibles. These services, offered by our professional partners in the art world, cover the entire life cycle of these objects. What are they? What types of clients are they aimed at? What are the stakes of an artistic heritage? Laurent Issaurat, Head of Art Banking Services at Societe Generale Private Banking, provides the answers. He also discusses Societe Generale's commitment to the arts.

Full script:

Art Banking: insights

 "Art Banking" is a term that you may not be familiar with, and for good reasons: we have coined it to refer to a unique series of services orchestrated by Societe Generale Private Banking and, mostly provided by professionals from the art world. These services cover a wide range of subjects, from the appraisal, authentication, purchase or sale of art objects and collections, to assistance in setting up inventories, to thinking about how to hold or pass on assets to the next generation, insurance solutions, and even the exciting subject of philanthropy and the arts.

Our clients have extremely diverse profiles. Some people are not interested in the arts at all, but have inherited a work of art and need an estimate of its value and perhaps later assistance in selling it. Others are seasoned collectors, interested in auditing their insurance policy, or wishing to address specific legal or tax issues related to a donation, for example. And our clients can also be first-time buyers, who are making their first significant purchase or starting a real collection, or who are interested in philanthropy, or who simply wish to attend some of the major events and meetings we organize.

For which client profiles?

Artistic heritage: what is at stake? 

Beware, we never present art as a classic "investment", from which a financial return, a financial gain, should be expected. The vocation of a work of art is first of all to provide intellectual and aesthetic pleasure, or the pleasure of owning a beautiful object or even collecting, and all this, obviously, cannot be measured in euros or dollars. This justifies - or even imposes - being accompanied by experts in their respective fields, selected from the worlds of auction houses, art consulting, insurance, law or taxation of artistic heritage. An accompaniment that allows you to navigate the world of art with more information and guidance.

Very often, our conversations begin with a visit to the Societe Generale contemporary art collection. This is another important point that deserves to be highlighted: for several decades, Societe Generale has been involved in the art world, and in particular, in contemporary art, which we collect. We are very proud of our house's passion for art, which we like to share with our Private Banking clients.

So do not hesitate to contact your private banker. We will be very happy to start a conversation and help you realise your projects regarding work of arts or art collection. In the meantimeI thank you for your attention and say see you soon maybe!
