CREDIT REPORT: Is retail giant Pinault-Printemps-Redoute about to shed its financial services arm, Finaref? Speculation heated up over the weekend in Europe that PPR may sell the affiliate, possibly to Credit Agricole. Finaref comprises credit card operations for PPR’s Printemps, Fnac, Conforama and Redoute activities.
