Why diversified private assets
The private assets universe has expanded rapidly over the past decade. More stringent capital requirements on banks have seen the disintermediation of traditional financing models by asset managers and institutional investors across a broad range of asset classes such as:
- Infrastructure debt
- Commercial real estate debt
- Mid-market loans
- Asset backed securities
- Mortgage-backed securities
Diversified private asset portfolios offer investors exposure to this broad range of asset classes.
BNP Paribas Asset Management can create bespoke diversified private asset solutions for investors, offering a broad blend of underlying private market and real asset exposure, through a unique dual proprietary origination model and co-investment opportunities with BNP Paribas Group.
Design, dynamic implementation, active asset allocation, cash-management, governance and reporting is overseen by a dedicated team of multi-asset, quantitative and solutions investment professionals. From product design to the structuring of vehicles, BNP Paribas Asset Management is able to offer bespoke cash-flow matching, income oriented or total return closed- and open-ended, evergreen fund solutions.
Our private market strategies seek to embed ESG1 in their respective investment processes, in addition to impact and climate objectives.

- 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).
