The "International Brand Barometer" measures the recognition and image of the BNP Paribas brand in different countries. This Barometer is based on a survey conducted by TNS Sofres of small and medium enterprises (in 12 countries) and by Ipsos Marketing among individuals (age 18 to 65 in 14 countries). Thanks to the wide presence of its brand, BNP Paribas is one of the most international banks.

For medium and large enterprises, the rate is 99% in Belgium, 100% in Luxembourg and 89% in Italy.
