BNP AM

The sustainable investor for a changing world

Based on the successful repositioning of the business, which was completed between 2016 and 2021, BNP Paribas Asset Management now has solid and scalable foundations, and a clear value proposition. It has demonstrated its resilience and agility in challenging times, and despite the current difficult economic and geopolitical environment, BNP Paribas Asset Management aims to pursue its trajectory and accelerate growth in a focused manner.  

By 2025 BNP Paribas Asset Management’s ambitions are to:

  • be the sustainable asset manager of reference in Europe
  • define a clear pathway to net zero for its assets under management
  • have 90% of its open-ended funds classified as SFDR Article 8 or 9 [1]
  • continue to outperform its peer group in terms of growth.

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 outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns. 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). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
