Calyon was created in May 2004 by the transfer of assets from Crédit Lyonnais' Corporate and Investment Banking division to Crédit Agricole Indosuez (CAI), which had been created in 1996 with the purchase of Banque Indosuez by Crédit Agricole.
The division was rebranded Credit Agricole Corporate & Investment Bank (CACIB) in Feb 2010.
