These services are available in CDG in every terminal.
This being said, the closest SG bank from CDG is at Parc des expositions, 5 min walk from the RER station.
I didn't say every bank must have representation. I said (or meant to say) every retail bank that is legally operating in France should be allowed to pay for a spot at CDG. Just like every EU airline. You should not be able to "own" an airport like CDG as HSBC does. It is anti-competitive.

Bank machines are not only for withdrawals you know.
