Our businesses and expertise

BNP Paribas organizes its businesses into three main operating divisions: Corporate & Institutional Banking (CIB), Commercial, Personal Banking & Services (CPBS) and Investment & Protection Services (IPS). In order to increase cooperation between the business lines and thus meet the changing expectations of our customers, employees, investors and all other stakeholders, these divisions implement a global and joint approach to enrich each other's expertise and provide our customers with continuous long-term support for all their projects.

Corporate & Institutional Banking

Our Corporate & Institutional Banking (CIB) division serves two types of clients: corporate clients and institutional investors (banks, insurance companies, asset managers, etc.) by offering tailor-made solutions in terms of capital markets, securities services, investment banking, financing, risk management, cash management and financial advisory.

Its strategy of positioning itself as a bridge between corporate and institutional clients makes it possible to connect the financing needs of corporate clients with institutional clients seeking investment opportunities.

 With a presence in three major regions - Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA), the Americas and Asia Pacific (APAC) - CIB's business lines work as closely as possible to support our customers' needs and accompany them in their transition to a more sustainable economy.
