In Asia Pacific, we operate from two main centers: in Hong Kong and Singapore. Our Corporate & Institutional Banking (CIB) and International Financial Services (IFS) divisions are especially active in the region.
Heading for growth
Asia Pacific is an area of strategic growth for BNP Paribas. In 2013, we launched a development plan in the region to boost our revenue by €2 billion to reach €3 billion by 2016. We plan to achieve this goal by further targeting institutional and private investors while also capitalizing on our regional presence with new strategic partnerships.

To facilitate our employees’ efforts to support our growth strategy, we inaugurated a new campus in Singapore in March 2014. Located in the heart of a dynamic region, the center is our first training and talent development establishment in Asia Pacific, serving as a site of sharing, reflection and group learning.

United States and Canada: the west way to bank
With more than 4 million individual, professional and corporate clients, we maintain a strong position across North America. You too can embark on a conquest of the West!
We primarily operate in the United States and Canada through our two core businesses: Corporate & Institutional Banking and Retail Banking & Services. This situation is nothing new, we have been present since 1919 in the United States and for over 50 years in Canada. Two markets where digital innovation plays a major role!
That’s why our prospecting and innovation company, L’Atelier BNP Paribas, set up shop ten years ago in the heart of Silicon Valley. Its mission is to detect disruptive innovations and help organizations turn their ideas into concrete projects.

Middle East and Africa: a hotbed for banking innovation
In this region more than anywhere else, we are investing in a winning trio: local roots, agility and innovation. Learn all about a continent on the rise.
In the Middle East, we are contributing to the wave of economic diversification that is now driving the region’s dynamic growth.
And in Africa, we are expanding our investment banking activities and developing new avenues for growth. Our advantage lies in our strong local roots, as we often operate under a recognized market brand, as is the case in Morocco with BMCI and in Senegal with BICIS.
We also promote innovation in certain countries with a high rate of mobile phone penetration. One example comes from Gabon: since 2013, we have powered the BICIG’s mobile app, enabling the bank’s customers to perform peer-to-peer money transfers.
