French term or phrase: Titres et placements
Bonjour,

Contexte : une usine en Estonie est sur le point d'ouvrir un compte en banque en France. Le PDG souhaite également mettre en place un service internet auprès de cette banque.

C'est un formulaire à traduire, avec comme option de réponse oui/non.

Je suis complètement nulle en vocabulaire financier même en français :-( mais je dois faire cette traduction, car c'est pour un ami.

Merci à tous ceux qui pourront m'aider ! La suite des autres mots à traduire viendra plus tard....

Explanation:
DON'T use the word 'placements', which in English usually describes the *reverse* of investments (i.e., the placing of the instruments with investors).

Securities *are* investments from the holder's standpoint, which is why you should add 'other'. The other investments are most probably CDs (time deposits), as a05 suggests, but could include holdings of money-market funds. In any case, the French does not say they are necessarily bank deposits.
