Thank you for the award, which we accept wholeheartedly. BNP Paribas Wealth Management is a major player in addressing the wealth needs of Hong Kong’s top families. Our dedication to delivering the best-in-class services and products to wealth management clients is defined by a set of well-balanced offerings, as well as our committed and cohesive teams, which make us stand out.

What was behind the judges’ decision?

  • Defying volatility market conditions, BNP Paribas Wealth Management delivered a robust performance in Hong Kong in terms of key business metrics, including revenue, AUM growth, net operating income and fundraising for alternative investment solutions
  • BNP Paribas Wealth Management in 2022 demonstrated a strong and astute sense of innovation in terms of products, such as launching new principal protected and structured note products — as well as semi-liquid private equity — early in the year to help clients defend against downside risks
  • Despite industry-wide deleveraging in 2022, the bank showed a creative approach in order to continue supporting clients with credit solutions. This included bespoke, pre-delivery yacht and real estate financing, often taking advantage of the one-bank model
  • The bank presented a clear commitment to ESG and sustainable investing in the context of the Hong Kong market, including significant fundraising from the local market for sustainability mandates
  • BNP Paribas Wealth Management was able to showcase a number of examples during the period under consideration of how its one-bank model was used to maximise service levels and solutions for clients, including capabilities in M&A and equity capital markets
