In 2015, the Heritage and Historical Archives Department of BNP Paribas has launched their website, Well of History, that brings together hundreds of documents, films, annual reports, posters, and thematic articles about the history of the Group.

The second episode of the U.S. saga has just been published, providing an overview of our history in the United States of America: “The French American Banking Corporation, a French bank in America“.

“After opening its first office in San Francisco in 1877, the Comptoir national d’escompte de Paris wanted to expand its presence in the United States. The goal became a reality in 1919 with the founding of the French American Banking Corporation (FABC).”
