About BNP Paribas Group

BNP Paribas (www.bnpparibas.com) is a European leader in global banking and financial services and is one of the 6 strongest banks in the world according to Standard & Poor's. The group is present in over 85 countries. It holds key positions in three major segments: Corporate and Investment Banking, Asset Management & Services and Retail Banking.

BNP Paribas North & East Asia

In North & East Asia, BNP Paribas is organized around the dynamic regional hub of Hong Kong with its business primarily comprising the two core areas of Corporate and Investment Banking & Asset Management and Services.

Corporate and Investment Banking

The Corporate and Investment Banking activities are balanced between advisory and capital markets; and specialized financing. The client coverage organization manages the bank's client portfolio along with Financial Institutions, Large Corporates and a team of Senior Bankers who maintain close relationships with individual clients.

In July 2008, BNP Paribas Corporate and Investment Banking further strengthened its organization to ensure optimal coverage for major corporate and institutional clients worldwide, with the establishment of a single worldwide coverage entity to serve its major clients. At the same time, two new business lines have been created:

  • Global Structured Finance (which includes the structured finance activities of origination, structuring, execution and syndication for all business sectors);
  • Corporate & Transaction Group (which includes all clients with diversified flow banking needs).

Asset Management and Services

This is the asset-gathering arm of the Group which includes Private Banking and BNP Paribas Investment Partners. Serving high net-worth individuals, BNP Paribas Private Bank offers personalized portfolio engineering and diverisification advice, tailored to the specific needs of each client and backed by a range of carefully selected high-performance, innovative products.

The BNP Paribas Investment Partners team, organized by client category, provides client-specific offers and personalized local services. Through a unique platform that offers immediate and simplified access to a broad range of specialized Partner companies, BNP Paribas Investment Partners has become a leader in the European asset management industry.

Completion of its conversion project in China

In June 2008, BNP Paribas announced the completion of its conversion project in China, a prerequisite for the Bank to gradually conduct banking services freely with all classes of customers in China. The conversion also represents a significant landmark of the Bank since it established its presence in the country nearly 150 years ago. In April, BNP Paribas secured the approval from China's banking regulator, the China Banking Regulatory Commission, to convert the branches of BNP Paribas in Beijing, Tianjin and Guangzhou into branches of BNP Paribas (China) Limited, a wholly owned existing subsidiary of the Bank. BNP Paribas Shanghai branch will be retained as a foreign currency wholesale branch under the BNP Paribas Group.

Partnership with Bank of Nanjing

BNP Paribas has partnered with Bank of Nanjing (BoN) to give it a foothold on the mainland. BNP Paribas' partner is one of China's biggest commercial banks located in Jiangsu province, with the number of branches totaling 60 and employing more than 1,500 people. The deal was completed in October 2005. Under the terms of the agreement, BNP Paribas purchased a 19.2 percent stake in the Chinese bank, which has been diluted to 12.6 per cent stake following Bank of Nanjing's initial public offering in July 2007. The partnership with BoN includes a range of business activities, building on BoN's knowledge and distribution strength of the local market, and BNP Pariba' product skills in areas including retail banking, credit cards, wealth management and corporate banking.
