Societe Generale building
SGSS will be extending securities services through its Ivory Coast subsidiary, as part of a broader African play.

Société Générale Securities Services (SGSS) has announced that it will offer securities services in West Africa through Societe Generale de Banques en Côte d'Ivoire (SGBCI), the French bank's subsidiary in the state.

While SocGen has been offering securities services in the nation for nearly 30 years, this will form part of its broader strategy to include those services for the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) region.

Specific services include Swift-enabled custody and settlement delivery, and will apply to Benin, Burkina Faso, Ivory, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo.
