The sustainable investor for a changing world

Diversified private assets

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.

Our platform

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.

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.

    Investments are subject to market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investments in securities. 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. There is no guarantee that the performance objective will be achieved.
    • 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).

    Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment risk: The lack of common or harmonised definitions and labels integrating ESG and sustainability criteria at EU level may result in different approaches by managers when setting ESG objectives. This also means that it may be difficult to compare strategies integrating ESG and sustainability criteria to the extent that the selection and weightings applied to select investments may be based on metrics that may share the same name but have different underlying meanings. In evaluating a security based on the ESG and sustainability criteria, the Investment Manager may also use data sources provided by external ESG research providers. Given the evolving nature of ESG, these data sources may for the time being be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable. Applying responsible business conduct standards in the investment process may lead to the exclusion of securities of certain issuers. Consequently, (the Sub-Fund's) performance may at times be better or worse than the performance of relatable funds that do not apply such standards.
