An ambition sparks.
Our story begins with Louis Renault receiving his first order for 12 cars in 1898 and stumbling upon what would become one of the largest and renowned businesses in France, Renault. Today, the Groupe Renault is present in 128 countries and has over 120,000 employees worldwide. With its unique alliance with Nissan, it has become one of the world's largest car companies.
Demand for financing.
With the need to help customers finance their vehicles all over the world, Renault created its own, internal bank in 1974 - RCI Bank and Services.
Forty years later, it remains privately owned by Groupe Renault and operates in over 35 countries across six continents. Today, as a group, RCI Bank and Services works exclusively with some of the world’s largest brands, covering not only Renault and Nissan but also Dacia, Alpine, Mitsubishi and Infiniti.
RCI Bank and Services’ ability to innovate and simplify has led to a banking model that we're very proud of. Our online retail savings bank operates in France, Germany, Austria, Brazil and the UK, with over 200,000 banking customers.
