Groupe Banque Populaire is a French Group of cooperative banks. It is controlled by 18 regional banks, the CASDEN Banque Populaire and the Crédit Coopératif.

In 2006, Groupe Banque Populaire has created a new company with another French cooperative banking group, Groupe Caisse d'Epargne in order to create Natixis. The new Investment Bank is the result of the spin-off of the two Investment Banks of the two groups : Banque Populaire's Natexis and Caisse d'Epargne's IXIS Corporate and Investment Bank. Natixis is equally controlled by the two groups.

As of December 2008, Banque Populaire had:

  • 3,460,000 sociétaires (shareholders)
  • 9,400,000 clients
  • 3,391 branches in France
  • a presence in 70 countries


In October 2008 the group announced plans, since approved by the French government, to merge with Groupe Caisse d'Epargne.[1] The companies merged in 2009 to form the Group BPCE[2] and retain their separate retail banking brands and branch networks. Banque Populaire chief executive officer Philippe Dupont has been nominated to head the enlarged company.[1]
