Belonging to the public sphere
CNP Assurances has a solid shareholder base with a majority public shareholding, and is committed to long-term development.
A public institution until 1992, CNP Assurances is a public limited company with a Board of Directors. It was floated on the stock market in 1998.
The continued support of its four historic shareholders – Caisse des Dépôts, La Banque Postale, BPCE and the French State – since its initial public offering, as evidenced by the signature of an agreement, has strengthened CNP Assurances' sustainability and the development of its partnership model.
On 4 March 2020, as part of the creation of a major public financial centre announced by the public shareholders of CNP Assurances on 30 August 2018, shares were exchanged and transferred between the French State, Caisse des Dépôts, La Poste and La Banque Postale.
CNP Assurances' capital at 31 December 2020 is broken down as follows:
New agreement between BPCE and La Banque Postale
As part of the merger between CNP Assurances and La Banque Postale, and following LBP's termination at the end of June of the current agreement relating to CNP Assurances, which was due to expire on 31 December 2019, BPCE and La Banque Postale signed a new agreement in their capacity as shareholders of CNP Assurances (holding 16.11% and 62.13% of the capital respectively), which will be in force until the end of 2030.
With two directors, the BPCE Group will continue to be represented on the Board of Directors of CNP Assurances and its specialist committees.
CNP Assurances' two major distribution partners, La Banque Postale and the BPCE Group's networks (Caisses d'Epargne, Banques Populaires and Crédit Foncier), are and will remain stable shareholders of CNP Assurances.
