Abstract
On Nov. 15, 2006, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its long-term counterparty credit rating on French bank Crédit du Nord S.A. (CDN) to 'AA' from 'AA-', following an upgrade of its parent Société Générale (SocGen; AA/Stable/A-1+), reflecting CDN's core status within the domestic retail-banking activities of SocGen. At the same time, the short-term 'A-1+' counterparty credit rating on CDN was affirmed. The outlook is stable. In addition, Standard & Poor's raised its long- and short-term counterparty credit ratings on three of CDN's subsidiaries-- Banque Rhône Alpes S.A., Banque Tarneaud S.A., and Banque Kolb S.A.--to 'AA-/A-1+' from 'A+/A-1'. The outlook on these subsidiaries is stable. The upgrade of SocGen to 'AA' from 'AA-' reflects a major improvement in SocGen's business...
