Société Générale Srbija (full name: Société Générale Banka Srbija a.d. Beograd) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the French-based Société Générale bank. It is one of the largest banks in Serbia, according to NBS data (fourth largest in terms of assets, as of 2017)[2]


Société Générale first established a representative office in Belgrade in 1977. On February 12, 1991, Société Générale Yugoslav Bank was founded as the first bank with foreign capital to be established in former Yugoslavia. The bank was a joint venture between Paris-based Société Générale (75%), and the now defunct Beogradska banka (20%) and Banque Franco-Yougoslave (5%).

At first, it was established as a unit of SG Corporate & Investment Banking, and provided services to corporate customers only.

In 2001, it became a full-service universal bank, providing services to both corporate clients and individuals. It was only in late 2007 that the bank changed name to reflect the name change of the country it operates in (Yugoslavia was renamed Serbia and Montenegro in 2003, and Serbia became independent in 2006). It now has a network of more than 87 branches in Belgrade and other parts of Serbia.

In 2014 Société Générale Srbija bought KBC banka's portfolio, while Telenor Srbija bought the KBC banka itself, creating Telenor banka. In December 2017, Société Générale Srbija took housing and cash loans to citizens, as well as credit card debt, from the Jubanka, which was bought by the Serbian AIK Banka in April 2017.[3]

Market and financial data[edit]

According to its most recent annual financial report submitted to Serbian Business Register Agency, the company has more than 1,300 employees and it posted an annual profit of RSD 3,810,808,000 (approximately 31.75 million at the time) for the calendar year 2016.[1]
