With a team of over 100 investment professionals and the support of dedicated sustainability experts from BNP Paribas Asset Management’s Sustainability Centre, our Private Assets platform combines direct private asset management activities with indirect management and advisory services.
Why private assets
Over the last decade, private assets have risen to prominence in global allocations. Investors are turning to the asset class in search of an illiquidity premium and, given its generally lower correlation to public markets, portfolio diversification. Private markets also allow for ambitious ESG1 targets and can help investors to capture long-term growth trends, often ahead of listed markets.
BNP Paribas’ Private Assets platform combines the expertise of teams across BNP Paribas Group. It draws on their deep private market networks and privileged access to the Bank’s financing franchises; their complementary skills in advising, originating, structuring, and managing investments; and BNP Paribas Asset Management’s Sustainability Centre to ensure ESG integration2 to in-scope strategies.
Our Private Assets platform blends both direct investments and indirect management and advisory services. Through this, we can build and tailor high-quality solutions to meet clients’ investment goals.
We offer direct investment opportunities across a broad range of private asset segments, as well as fund of funds and dedicated advisory or management partnerships to Group entities and third-party clients.

- 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).
