Crédit Agricole CIB
From November 8, 2011 to January 29, 2012, Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank will carry on with its commitment to the musée du quai Branly by supporting the “Samurai, Armor of the Warrior” exhibition.
In 2009 and 2010, Crédit Agricole CIB sponsored two of the musée du quai Branly’s flagship events: the second version of the biannual photography exhibition “Photoquai” (September and November 2009) and the exhibition “Other Indian Masters, Contemporary Creations of the Adivasi” (30 March to 18 July 2010).
At the crossroads of civilisations, the musée du quai Branly provokes discovery and astonishment. Crédit Agricole CIB is pleased to be associated with this ambassador of art from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas.
This partnership finds its natural origins in the history of Crédit Agricole CIB. Founded in 1875 as Banque de l’Indochine, Crédit Agricole CIB’s forerunner developed operations in numerous countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Nourished by the wealth of these cultures, the Bank went on to expand into other continents, developing rapidly from 1996, when it joined the Crédit Agricole Group.
Present in France and abroad, Crédit Agricole CIB has managed to find a true echo in the musée du quai Branly, "where cultures meet in dialogue". Strongly anchored in Asia and its roots, Crédit Agricole CIB wants to encourage the spread of foreign art works through targeted sponsorship actions, carrying on from the role of Crédit Agricole Group in financing the real economy.
Crédit Agricole CIB takes a strong cultural and educational approach enabling it to express its values to its employees and clients in a different form. In a complex economic environment, a company must be able to assert its commitment as a citizen, placing the individual at the heart of its strategy.
