A major sales destination for Hyundai and Kia vehicles in Europe, France is regarded as one of the most important markets for HMG. The group has opted for the strategy of setting up a captive finance company to further support vehicle sales in the European market by providing tailored financial services for customers and dealers.

HCF is the 10th overseas financial entity of Hyundai Capital and 17th when consulting entities and branches are taken into account. Within Europe, it is the fifth entity after operations in Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia and Italy.

With the establishment of Hyundai Capital Bank Europe in Germany in 2016, Hyundai Capital said it would enter additional countries in Europe. Prior to France, the company opened a branch in Italy in 2021.
