PARIS May 13 Societe Generale,
France's second-largest listed bank, has up to 4 billion euros
($5.5 billion) for organic growth and acquisitions in the next
three years, Chief Executive Frederic Oudea told journalists on
"Acquisitions will respect the balance of our capital
allocation, our geographies," Oudea said, adding that SocGen
could, for example, consider acquisitions in retail banking and
private banking in Europe.
SocGen is presenting its strategic plan to investors in
Paris on Tuesday.
