BNP Paribas Asset Management offers a broad range of ESG-aligned1 and sustainable thematic ETFs.2 Today, we manage around 39 billion EUR in index solutions.3
Why ESG and sustainable thematic ETFs
ETFs have grown in popularity in recent years thanks to generally lower fees, intraday trading, and enhanced transparency.
ESG-aligned ETFs can provide additional benefits like improved risk management by, for example, steering clear of companies involved in controversial activities that could damage their reputation and business performance. And those that target specific sustainability themes, such as low-carbon energy, could offer attractive long-term growth potential, albeit with greater volatility and risk.
Sustainability is core to our business and our investment decisions. Through our BNP Paribas Easy ETF range, we seek to deliver long-term sustainable returns.

- 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, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).
