Dexia (, ) is a Belgian-French financial institution, also referred to as the Dexia Group, specializing in public finance. It was founded in 1996 through the merger of Crédit Communal de Belgique/Gemeentekrediet van België (founded 1860) and Crédit Local de France (founded 1987). The Dexia Group was founded as a dual-listed company, but in 1999 the Belgian entity took over the French entity to form one company. Dexia is a member of the BEL20, CAC 40, and LuxX indices. The company is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
The BIC code is GKCC BE BB, which mirrors the name of the old "Gemeentekrediet-Crédit Communal".
The problems at Dexia stem in part from a multi-billion loan to troubled German bank Depfa. The Dexia board stated on 5 October 2008 that the capital addition by the governments would put it in a position in which it could deal with detoriating market conditions, and that the credit risks associated with Hypo Real Estate and Depfa are only limited.
