Presentation of the group

FRANSABANK is the heiress in direct line of one of the first banks installed in Lebanon : the land credit of Algeria and Tunisia which opened a branch in Beirut in 1921.

Over the decades, the bank has transformed into a banking and financial group with around ten subsidiaries specializing in retail banking, project studies, financing structuring, investment banking, leasing, bancassurance and real estate.


The FRANSABANK group is now present in Lebanon, France, Sudan, Ivory Coast and Algeria.

In addition to these direct locations, FRANSABANK has a very large network of correspondents, including most of the major international banks.


The financial power, dynamism and modernity of the FRANSABANK Group are likely to provide decisive support for greater and faster development of its subsidiaries.
