PARIS Dec 9 France's Societe Generale
said on Friday it has agreed to sell the entire stake in its
German online broker Onvista AG to Commerzbank's online banking
unit Comdirect bank AG, as part of its plan to focus on its core
and profitable operations.
SocGen, France's second-biggest bank said the sale would
have a limited positive impact on the group's financial ratios
and that it remained strongly committed to the German market
through its corporate and investment banking, specialized
lending and consumer finance activities.
