Two French banks downgraded by Moody’s

Suspected to be too vulnerable because of their "Greec holdings" two of the biggest French banks, Société Générale and Crédit Agricole have been downgraded by the credit rating agency Moody’s.

Indeed, American money market funds — an important source of dollars for the banks — have been shying away from both banks since the crisis intensified over the summer. The ratings company downgraded Societe Generale from Aa2 to Aa3, and Credit Agricole from Aa1 to Aa2. It said it was keeping BNP Paribas at Aa2 for the time being, but all three banks face continuing review.
