PARIS (Reuters) - French bank Societe Generale SOGN.PA has filed its Brexit contingency plans with the Bank of England ahead of a July 14 deadline for banks operating in the country, a SocGen executive told Reuters.

Deputy Chief Executive Severin Cabannes, speaking on the sidelines of a conference in Paris, also said SocGen had the advantage of dual business hubs in London and Paris and so could easily adapt to Brexit.

Cabannes did not say how many jobs could be moved as part of the bank’s Brexit contingency plan, but added that Paris would be its top destination.
