Deposit and Consigment Fund (DCF) is a new type of public investor, with public-interest missions in support of public policies conducted by the State and local authorities in the field of development. It is an institutional investor and a long-term lender;
To fulfil this mission, the DCF needs more long-term resources that will enable it to become a benchmark financial support for real estate development and acquisition, infrastructure financing, as well as low-cost financing, social housing and land use planning.
As a Caisse de dépôt, we must have abundant and long-term resources to enable it to play its role as a long-term investor effectively and to support public policies effectively;
The CDC business model is based on the structure of a long liability to avoid the constraints of access to liquidity or asset volatility, which implies:
The financial model responds to the need to allocate liability resources optimally according to their maturity to uses with corresponding maturity, according to standard orthodoxy;
This optimal allocation of resources makes it possible to maximise returns;
As a development institution with a long-term financing obligation, it goes without saying that the volume of long-term resources must significantly outweigh short-term resources, and CDC has just reversed its balance sheet structure: long-term resources, which in 2012 represented only 30% of total resources, now represent 52% of the Total Balance Sheet.
Affirm our role in boosting the financial policy of the State, as an investor and long-term lender;
Strengthen the financial base;
Secure investments and strengthen customer confidence;
Position itself on sectors identified as strategic, promising and priority sectors;
Ensure financing for priority sectors, particularly social housing and SMEs;
Ensure the management of mandates entrusted by the State (infrastructure, environment, etc.);
Continuously adapt the methods of intervention and the business lines to the economic challenges.
