PARIS (Reuters) - French bank Societe Generale <SOGN.PA> said on Monday it agreed to sell its Belgian private banking unit to Dutch bank ABN AMRO <ABNd.AS> as part of its strategy to dispose of operations that lack critical size and potential for synergies within the group.

Societe Generale didn't disclose the amount of the transaction but said the sale will have a "limited positive impact on the Group's core equity tier one ratio."
