In line with its GTS (Growth, Technology and Sustainability) 2025 strategic plan, BNP Paribas is creating Private Assets, a new business unit to strengthen the support and service to clients in the fast-growing private assets market.
Private Assets will pursue ambitious goals of fundraising from third party clients, from major institutional investors to individual investors, supported by the Bank’s various distribution networks as well as its partners. This new business unit will prioritise development in two key areas:
Private Assets will bring together the private asset management expertise of the IPS division, accounting for more than EUR 30 billion of assets under management and advisory, including:
The integration of ESG criteria into investment and fund selection processes will also be an important element in combining these activities. Integrated within BNPP AM and operational from January 2023, Private Assets will be headed by David Bouchoucha, who becomes Head of Private Assets, reporting directly to Sandro Pierri, Chief Executive Officer of BNPP AM.
Renaud Dumora, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of BNP Paribas and Head of Investment & Protection Services commented: “Private asset management, a market that has tripled in 10 years, is one of the growth drivers identified in our GTS 2025 strategic plan and particularly for the IPS division, which is focused on savings and investment. Several IPS business lines have already developed strong expertise in private asset management and bringing them together will result in a stronger, broader and differentiated client offering. By leveraging all of the Group’s capabilities, Private Assets will be able to meet the growing expectations of institutional investors as well as individual clients.”
Sandro Pierri, CEO of BNP Paribas Asset Management added: “The creation of Private Assets brings together teams with robust expertise, who will collectively offer a unique range of investment opportunities and solutions to all the Group’s clients. In an environment of volatility and cyclical uncertainty, being able to offer quality assets, selected according to financial and extra financial criteria, offering a stable return provides a major diversification lever.”Source: BNP Paribas
