France Banking & Financial Services Q2 2018
France's banking and financial services industry is among the most developed globally and the second largest in Europe,after the UK. In gross value-added terms, France ranks at number three, behind the UK and Germany. Although smaller in absoluteterms, it suggests that France's financial services industry is less saturated and relies less on financial services for economic growthcompared with other regional peers, which also brings considerable advantages.

Despite already being well-regulated, planned reforms to the banking and financial services sector under the Macron administrationwill also support sector growth in the medium term.
