French Bank Caisse d'Épargne Reveals €600 million Rogue Trading Loss
10/17/2008 10:28 AM ET

Groupe Caisse d'Épargne, a major French mutual bank in talks with rival Groupe Banque Populaire, revealed Friday morning that it had lost €600 million ($807 million) due to rogue trading within its CNCE unit.

"Owing to the extreme volatility of the financial markets and the stock market crash in the week of October 6, Groupe Caisse d'Epargne has suffered a major market incident in its equity derivatives activity, resulting in a loss of approximately €600 million", the company said in a press release.

Caisse d'Épargne assured investors that measures were taken immediately to close the position and discontinue this activity.

"This loss is exclusively related to the proprietary trading activities pursued by CNCE, i.e., activities independent of its treasury department", said Caisse d'Epargne. "Disciplinary action has been taken and the supervisory authorities have been informed."
