At a glance...

  1. 1A full suite of services
    Our core product offering includes several services: local and global custody, derivatives clearing, full CIS trustee services, cash management services, securities lending and borrowing, treasury and foreign exchange services for major currencies, and independent pension fund reporting. We also offer low risk due to our great credit ratings.
  2. 2Operational efficiency and cost savings
    We have high levels of automated transaction processing on a single platform across all markets, which results in transactions being processed with minimal or no manual intervention. This creates operational efficiencies deriving from effective trade settlement exception management processes, which ultimately results in cost savings for our clients.

Societe Generale Johannesburg Branch therefore has a strong, prudential requirement to uphold its global reputation and provide the best possible services to our clients.
