About BNP Paribas Our story is closely intertwined with that of our parent company, BNP Paribas, Europe’s leading financial services Group operating today. The BNP Paribas Group is deeply rooted in Europe’s economic history. In France, the predecessors of the BNP, the Comptoirs nationaux d’escompte (discount banks) of Paris and Mulhouse, were created in 1848 to foster the economy hit by crisis. Since 2000, as well as growing organically, we’ve acquired a number of companies to enable us to reach newmarkets and offer our clients a broader range of solutions. The result is that today we’re one of the world’s leading asset managers. But throughout our history we’ve never lost focus on what really matters to us: our passion for investing and for helping our clients meet their goals.
