About us

The sustainable investor for a changing world

A fast-changing world offers many opportunities. It also comes with great uncertainty and challenges that develop our abilities and test our ambitions, perspectives and determination. This determination translates into one goal: to generate long-term sustainable returns for our clients, based on a sustainability-driven approach.

We have been committed to sustainability since 2002 and have continued to strengthen our investment philosophy and our management processes to take Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations into account and promote a low carbon, environmentally sustainable and inclusive economy.

Sandro Pierri
CEO BNP Paribas Asset Management

“Because understanding and supporting the transition to a sustainable economy is key for us to generating long term sustainable returns, we have adopted a single-minded sustainability approach. It shapes our firm and guides what we do: our strategy, our culture, our structure, our products, our processes, the way we engage with our clients and with the companies and the markets we invest in. This is why we say: ‘we are the sustainable investor for a changing world’.”

We focus our expertise on five core capabilities aligned with our clients’ goals: high conviction active strategies, emerging markets, private assets, multi-asset investment and liquidity solutions. Our investment processes, which embed sustainability, use quantitative and fundamental research to help our portfolio managers generate alpha. Our solutions combine these capabilities in order to answer our clients’ requirements with the most relevant offer. To achieve this we manage assets across the globe by keeping an open mind and by staying true to our convictions. Our experts around the world constantly investigate secular trends and sustainability shifts, supported by in-depth fundamental investment analysis and proprietary ESG scoring, while our robust risk framework combined with our quantitative techniques leads to better investment and asset allocation decisions.

We believe it takes all of us to be a key driver of the shift to positive investing. Only a company where people work together can embrace this changing world. At BNP Paribas Asset Management, we are the sum of our people – a group of interesting individuals with different backgrounds and cultures – and we expect companies we work with to aim for the same standards.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial investment. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors, is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, to greater uncertainty because less information and/or less liquidity is available or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
