**Key Points and Figures:**

The video discusses the key figures for the year 2019, acknowledging that each year has its own significance and context. In 2019, the CDC presented an aggregated balance sheet of €459 billion, a substantial amount that demonstrates the institution’s significance. The video also differentiates between the “fonds d’épargne” (savings fund) and the general section, explaining their roles and importance within the CDC.

The “fonds d’épargne” represents the majority of the CDC’s resources, totaling €298.4 billion in 2019. This section centralizes the savings of French citizens, including popular savings accounts such as Livret A, Livret d’Épargne Populaire, and Livret Développement Durable. Alongside these savings, there are also various liabilities amounting to €25.2 billion, which represent the sources of resources for the CDC.

The video further explains how the CDC utilizes these resources. The majority of the funds (€190 billion) are transformed into long-term loans for the benefit of public interest, including supporting local communities and social housing. Additionally, there are €98.4 billion invested in various financial placements to ensure the liquidity and return on savings. It’s important to note that the CDC has no rights to the net results of the savings fund and that a portion of the results is allocated to the state.

The general section of the CDC, amounting to €171 billion in 2019, encompasses various deposits from legal professionals, notaries, and judicial commissioners. This section involves asset management, including investments in short-term and long-term debt, strategic partnerships, and diverse assets.
