1858

Founding of Compagnie du Canal de Suez

Compagnie Universelle du Canal Maritime de Suez is founded by Ferdinand de Lesseps in order to dig and operate the Suez Canal, an incredible 160-km-long feat of engineering that runs from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea.

After the canal is nationalised in 1956 and its shareholders reimbursed, the firm is renamed Compagnie Financière de Suez. It increases its investments in diverse sectors, establishing Banque de la Compagnie Financière de Suez in 1959. Renamed Banque de Suez et de l'Union des Mines in 1966 and merged with Banque de l’Indochine, it becomes one of the cornerstones of Banque Indosuez, founded in 1975.
