The Group

As a top-tier European and international banking establishment, the BNP Paribas Group assists all of its customers – individuals, associations, entrepreneurs, SMEs, large corporations and institutionals – in bringing their projects to a successful conclusion, through to financing, investment, savings and protection solutions.

BNP Paribas: the basics 

From its beginnings, the BNP Paribas Group, which has founded by successive mergers of several banks that have been booming in industry, has had the mission of financing the economy and serving its customers and society, a company purpose that has constantly asserted itself over the past two centuries.

Today, with 184,000 employees across 64 countries and territories, the Group is continuing its drive for positive impact, reflected in its own operations, in the solutions it offers and in its role as a sponsor.

Through the BNP Paribas Foundation in France and the 11 others worldwide, the Group is involved in local and civic life and pursues its ambition to contribute to a more sustainable and inclusive world.
