BNP Paribas Wealth Management

Best Private Bank – Sustainable Investments

Eleonore Dachicourt

head of Sustainable & Responsible Investments Asia

We are delighted to receive this recognition for the second consecutive year as it reaffirms our efforts to help accelerate clients’ transition to a low-carbon economy. At BNP Paribas Wealth Management, we share a strong commitment to bringing about a positive impact through the way we do business and the way we engage with clients to provide them with solutions tailored to their needs and goals — including sustainable investments, impact investing, and philanthropy.

What was behind the judges’ decision?

  • On the product side, BNP Paribas Wealth Management has been building on what was already an impressive offering. In the region, the bank offers customised sustainable solutions, a global high quality ESG stock basket, sustainable investment-themed discretionary portfolio management, Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) private equity funds, and its MyAdvisory Sustainable Service — a tailored portfolio that infuses its contractual advisory service with sustainable development goals
  • Few banks do it better in terms of active engagement with clients on ESG and sustainability matters. In 2022, BNP Paribas Wealth Management’s Green Carpet Days provided clients with tailored, hands-on workshops on themes such as energy transition, while the bank organised webinars with the likes of KKR on sustainability-related topics
  • BNP Paribas Wealth Management demonstrated to the judging panel how it is improving the way it works hand-in-hand with clients to identify sustainability goals. During the period under consideration, the bank has been refining its MyImpact questionnaire, which seeks to identify a client’s specific sustainability goals and propose appropriate solutions

What we said

In a year when global markets were pummelled by rising inflation and energy geopolitics, it would perhaps be understandable for private banks to temporarily put the sustainable agenda to one side. For BNP Paribas Wealth Management in Asia-Pacific, however, this was emphatically not the case. The bank is decisively moving forward with its ambitious 2025 Plan on Sustainability, which focuses on re-aligning portfolios, boosting client engagement and providing the best tools to reach its environmental goals, said Daniel Shane, editor of Asian Private Banker.

From a regional perspective, BNP Paribas Wealth Management has substantially enhanced ESG screening of investments, philanthropy initiatives and overall solutions aimed at ensuring that it keeps driving the sustainability agenda. For these reasons and more, Asian Private Banker is proud to name BNP Paribas Wealth Management the winner of the category Best Private Bank – Sustainable Investments at the 12th Awards for Distinction.
