All about CA Consumer Finance funding
The Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance Group deploys various self-funding instruments as part of a policy of diversifying its financing resources: securitisation, repos, issue of NEU-CP, NEU-MTN, and EMTN, as well as an online deposit collection business.
Securitisation is now a major successful lever of external funding for the Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance Group:
- deployed in most of the group’s entities, both in Europe and elsewhere in the world.
- with a diversity of characteristics of the transactions carried out: public or private, static or revolving, with or without transfer of risk.
Repo transactions also help to strengthen the group’s liquidity ; these “secured” transactions are built from the securities hold from retained securitisations.
In France, CACF SA issues NEU-CP (formerly short-term certificates of deposit) as well as NEU-MTN (formerly medium-term marketable securities). FCA Bank in Italy issues Euro Medium Term Notes (EMTN) through its Irish branch.
A deposit collection business, today conducted by several entities with institutionals and residents of various countries.
This activity has existed in Germany since 2011, through the German subsidiary Creditplus, intended for institutional investors (via brokers) and individuals (online).

Within this range of financial instruments, securitisation is a major driver of external refinancing, but also to build up ECB-eligible collateral or to monitor its regulatory capital. Several entities have developed this technical expertise with a varied history: beginning in Italy with the subsidiaries of FCA Bank (2000) and Agos Ducato (2006), securitisation spread to France (2009), Netherlands (2010), Germany (2011), China (2014), and then Portugal (2015).
According to JP Morgan, CA Consumer Finance Group is ranked first - in number of transactions - in the euro-denominated market for public securitisations (issued in 2021) of Consumer Loans and is ranked 3rd in terms of deals amount.
