In France, in line with the policy chosen by the Group and leveraging off the expertise of its network of specialists and the partnerships it has established, Dexia Crédit Local has made every effort to retain its relationship of trust and sense of proximity with its customers by offering local decision-makers and players in the healthcare, social housing and social economy sectors the highest quality of service.
In 2011, with long-term liquidity in short supply, new lending was even more selective and was down overall. Moreover, in the light of the commitments the Bank had made, Dexia Crédit Local continued its active programme of desensitising structured loans, endeavouring to find collaborative solutions with the local players involved.
Under these adverse conditions, as a traditional partner in the field of local development, Dexia Crédit Local remained sensitive to the needs of its customers, putting all of its expertise to work in every region to address every issue affecting the life of the community. Toward this, Dexia has assisted its customers with their decision making by providing them with top-quality publications about local public sector life, produced by the Bank’s research department.
