PARIS (Reuters) - French bank Societe Generale's chief executive said some large corporates are drawing on committed credit lines as they try to secure liquidity, but that they are sometimes doing that with no real need.

"They are doing this to gain more confidence, but in a relatively irrational way," Societe Generale CEO Frederic Oudea said at a conference organised by Morgan Stanley and broadcast on its website.
