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 investment returns for our clients, based on a unique sustainability-driven philosophy.

We have been committed to sustainability since 2002 and have continued to strengthen our ambition, our investment philosophy and our management processes to take 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 to generating long term sustainable investment returns, we have adopted a single-minded sustainability philosophy. It has shaped our firm and directs all we do: our strategy, our culture, our structure, our products, our processes, the way we engage with our clients and our role in influencing 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.

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).
