Historic expertise adapted to the challenges of today

The consignments management mission is a core part of the very identity of Caisse des Dépôts: acting as a trusted third party. The ruling of 03 July 1816 indicates that the protection of consignments is the founding element of Caisse des Dépôts.

Consignment is a flexible tool, one of the advantages of which is being able to adapt to the changing needs of society. It supports public policies and responds to legal and financial security needs in diverse areas: safeguarding jobs, protecting the environment, etc.

Whether you are a legal professional, a local authority, an administration, a company or an individual, consignment can apply to a diverse range of situations affecting you.
