Investissements' assets to CM- CIC Asset Management is perfectly in line with
Milleis Banque's strategy of focusing on the wealth management of the bank's
clients. After Barclays France sold its wealth management activities and
changed its name to Milleis Banque, we are actively pursuing the repositioning
of our banking and management services offer, both in terms of investment
products and real estate credit or asset engineering, for example. The sale of
assets managed by Milleis Investissements thus gives us the opportunity to
focus on our expertise in portfolio management and in the selection of the
investment products most suitable to the needs of our clients in France".
