The bank for a changing world

For the first time this year, BNP Paribas Corporate and Investment Banking (CIB) won the “World's Best Global Bank in Trade Finance 2008” award from Global Finance magazine.

The “World's Best Banks” were selected based on performance over the past year, such as transaction volume, scope of global coverage, customer service, competitive pricing and innovative technologies, and other subjective criteria including reputation and management excellence. Global Finance editors - with input from industry analysts throughout the world, corporate financial executives and bankers - selected the best trade finance providers in 67 countries or regions.

This award follows the Group's previous distinctions: “Best Trade Finance Provider France” and “Best Trade Finance Provider Europe”, received in December 2007.
