Partnership

Partnership Arkea UBB

Arkéa on the front line

Jean-Pierre Denis, President of the Arkéa Group, and Laurent Marti, President of the Union Bordeaux Bègles rugby club, signed a 5-year partnership on 7 June. Arkéa will appear on the jersey of the Gironde team that plays in the Top 14. "The partnership with the UBB is a great opportunity for the Arkéa Group, which wishes to strengthen its presence in Nouvelle Aquitaine, a region in which it has already been well established for a long time among individuals, companies and regional development players," said Jean-Pierre Denis. (...) If Arkea has now made the choice to commit to the UBB over five years, it is because we fully recognise its sporting project and ambitions. The club embodies human values of commitment and humility to which we are very attached, paying particular attention to the training of the young talents of tomorrow. All these reasons made a five-year partnership between the Arkéa Group and the UBB very natural at a time when the club is giving itself the means to embark on a new cycle of development and to cross new milestones.

Subscribing a bank account in 9 minutes !

Crédit Mutuel Arkéa is the first French banking group to allow, via its three federations of Crédit Mutuel (Bretagne, Sud-Ouest, Massif Central) to subscribe to an online bank account and obtain immediate means of payment. Now, 9 minutes are enough to allow a prospect to open his or her own remote account and immediately have an RIB and a virtual credit card. This saves the client's time, but also saves his or her advisor's time, who can devote more time to studying and completing his or her clients' projects.
