PARIS (Reuters) – French bank Credit Agricole unveiled a new set of profitability targets for 2022 after it met its 2019 targets a year ahead of schedule.
The bank now expects to raise its annual net profit above 5 billion euros ($5.61 billion) in 2022, up from 4.4 billion in 2018, as it will seek more clients for its retail banks in Italy and France and expects to attract mid-sized companies with corporate banking services such as cash management.
Credit Agricole expects its return on tangible equity to fall to 11% in 2022 down from 12.7% in 2018.
