The sustainable investor for a changing world

About us

The sustainable investor for a changing world

A fast-changing world offers many opportunities. It also comes with great uncertainty and challenges that develop our abilities and test our ambitions, perspectives and determination. This determination translates into one goal: to generate long-term sustainable returns for our clients, based on a sustainability-driven approach.

We have been committed to sustainability since 2002 and have continued to strengthen our investment philosophy and our management processes to take Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations into account and promote a low carbon, environmentally sustainable and inclusive economy.

Sandro Pierri
CEO BNP Paribas Asset Management

“Because understanding and supporting the transition to a sustainable economy is key for us to generating long term sustainable returns, we have adopted a single-minded sustainability approach. It shapes our firm and guides what we do: our strategy, our culture, our structure, our products, our processes, the way we engage with the companies and the markets we invest in. This is why we say: ‘we are the sustainable investor for a changing world’.“

We focus our expertise on five core capabilities aligned with our clients’ goals: high conviction active strategies, emerging markets, private assets, multi-asset investment and liquidity solutions. Our investment processes, which embed sustainability, use quantitative and fundamental research to help our portfolio managers generate alpha. Our solutions combine these capabilities in order to answer our clients’ requirements with the most relevant offer. To achieve this we manage assets across the globe by keeping an open mind and by staying true to our convictions. Our experts around the world constantly investigate secular trends and sustainability shifts, supported by in-depth fundamental investment analysis and proprietary ESG scoring, while our robust risk framework combined with our quantitative techniques leads to better investment and asset allocation decisions.

We believe it takes all of us to be a key driver of the shift to positive investing. Only a company where people work together can embrace this changing world. At BNP Paribas Asset Management, we are the sum of our people – a group of interesting individuals with different backgrounds and cultures – and we expect companies we work with to aim for the same standards.

  • 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).

Investment involves risk including possible loss of principal. International investing involves risks, including risks related to foreign currency, limited liquidity, less government regulation, and the possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic or other developments. These risks are often heightened for investments in emerging/developing markets or smaller capital markets.


BNP Paribas Asset Management seeks to integrate environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors into all of our portfolios as a means to mitigate certain short, medium and long-term financial risks, identify better long-term investments, and encourage more responsible corporate behavior. We will never subordinate our client’s interests to unrelated objectives. Certain issuers and industries are excluded from our actively managed portfolios based upon our view of their ESG performance and risk profile. As a result, we may pass up certain opportunities when these excluded issuers or industries are in favor. Due to significant gaps in disclosure regimes around the world, we may need to rely upon voluntary disclosures by issuers, which are often not audited. We therefore may not have consistent access to complete, accurate or comparable information about the ESG performance of our holdings. Please consult the applicable offering document for more information about the specific ESG strategy employed by each investment strategy since a given strategy may not have specific ESG guidelines, and investments are not limited to securities that are ESG compatible.
