BNP Paribas Private Banking has been a partner of "Etoiles de Sport" (Sport Stars) since October 2006. The objective of the partnership is for French sport stars to mentor the next generation of promising French athletes in order to ease their entrance into the world of “champions.” This initiative is sponsored by the Ministry of Youth and Sports and is composed of two annual events:
- a gathering week at La Plagne in December;
- the Summer University whose goal is to educate in June,
This year, BNP Paribas was present from the 9th to the 13th of June at the "Etoiles de Sport" Summer University. The week permitted the Group to mark its educational engagement by leading workshops for high level athletes, in regards to taxes, insurance, how to prepare for a future after sports, as well as conducting individual interviews in order to answer concretely any questions the young athletes might have.
Teams from BNP Paribas' private banking and French retail banking worked hand-in-hand in welcoming the young sporting talents.
