Belgium - a country with long merchant and financial tradition
Few countries can claim to have so many historic cities in such a small area (32,545 sq km). In the Middle Ages, the Dutch-speaking cities of Flanders grew rich from the textile trade and attracted merchants, scholars and artists from all over Europe. In the 14th century, the bourse of Bruges governed exchange rates in all of Northern Europe; the Van der Beurse family gave their name to an institution - the “bourse,” or stock exchange. Belgium is a founding member of the EU, and Brussels houses several of its main institutions and is the home of many expatriates.
The clients of Société Générale Private Banking benefit from a personal relationship built on confidence and durability, objective investment advice and services covering financial engineering. In addition, the bank’s price schedules are clear and competitive.
Société Générale Private Banking has also offices in Aalst, Antwerp, Bruges, Brussels, Hasselt, Kempen, Knokke-Heist, Kortrijk, Leuven, Namur, Roeselare and Tournai.
