Was on the coach, so got some reflections.

 

It's full name is the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations.

 

Caisse des Depots

 

The Deposit and Consignment Office (CDC), sometimes simply called Caisse des Depots, is a public financial institution created in France in 1816. Placed under the direct supervision of Parliament, it operates in the public interest on behalf of the state and local governments, but also in competitive activities.

 

It is on Quai Anatole France.

 

Caisse des Dépôts is created by one of the great laws of the Restoration of April 28, 1816 to restore confidence in public finances, after the disorders of the First Empire. With its autonomous status, it can manage private funds outside the budget of the state and ensure the protection of savings. Beginning in 1816, it manages consignments and pensions of officials and invests the funds entrusted to its management.
