BNP Paribas is a leading European bank with an international reach. It has a presence in 73 countries, with more than 192,000 employees – including more than 146,000 in Europe and over 4,000 in Portugal alone. BNP Paribas is present in Portugal since 1985, having been the first foreign bank to operate in the country. Today, BNP Paribas has several entities operating directly in this territory, offering a wide range of integrated financial solutions to support its clients and their businesses.

Worldwide, the Group has key positions in its three main activities: Domestic Markets and International Financial Services (whose retail-banking networks and financial services are covered by Retail Banking & Services) and Corporate & Institutional Banking, which serves two client franchises: corporate clients and institutional investors. The Group helps all its clients (individuals, community associations, entrepreneurs, SMEs, corporate and institutional clients) to realize their projects through solutions spanning financing, investment, savings and protection insurance.


The Documentation Teams are responsible for checking the integrity and accuracy of the booking and help the Bank managing the subsequent risks undertaken by the Business lines. The Documentation team’s primary function is to support BNP Paribas Fortis Business lines through the drafting, chasing and matching of OTC Transactions on a variety of products (vanilla, exotics, complex structures) and asset classes (Foreign Exchange, Money Market, Credit and Interest Rates Derivatives). 

The Teams perform a critical control role in the timely reconciliation of bookings with clients including all post-trade events during the transactions’ life cycle. They make sure that all trades are confirmed and matched before the value date or the maturity of the concerned transactions in order to secure the settlement and avoid as much as possible payment incidents with clients.

To do so they identify issues, report them and resolve them by working closely with traders/sales people, legal and other operational departments within the Bank, if need be.  The teams are also involved in process improvements with a special focus on straight through processing (STP) and management of risk and controls, new product initiatives, development of new business in different regions of the world.
