Corporate loans are increasing at a still high rate in France compared to the eurozone

The latest ECB data once again put France in the lead in the eurozone for the growth of corporate loans: they increased by +4% year-on-year for France, compared to +0.8% for the eurozone overall at end-November 2015.

 

For several years, the growth of corporate loan outstandings in France has exceeded the figure for the eurozone, which has only become positive again over the last few months, with some countries continuing to lag. In a favourable rate environment, French companies with projects are benefiting from this increased financing and substantial access to high credit, notably for SMEs.
