The sustainable investor for a changing world

Private assets

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.




Why us

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.

    Private assets are investment opportunities that are unavailable through public markets such as stock exchanges. They enable investors to directly profit from long-term investment themes and can provide access to specialist sectors or industries, such as infrastructure, real estate, private equity and other alternatives that are difficult to access through traditional means. Private assets do, however, require careful consideration, as they tend to have high minimum investment levels and may be complex and illiquid.

Individual portfolio management teams may hold different views and may take different investment decisions for different clients. This material does not constitute investment advice.
    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.
