« Asia is one of our most important growth motors so this recognition is particularly gratifying, » added Vincent Lecomte, Co-CEO of BNP Paribas Wealth Management. “We are also happy that our global discretionary service is recognised for its expertise. 
Taking advantage of our set-up of international investment experts, we have bolstered our strategy to ensure dynamic and reactive advice within the framework of this offering.”

  • The awards Jury also ‘highly commended’ BNP Paribas Wealth Management for 3 other areas:

- Best « Next Generation » offering

Over and above the « Next Generation Programme » training destined for the heirs of our largest clients, BNP Paribas Wealth Management developed a unique digital network, pioneer in its field. This international community, connected via a private application, permits the next generation users to develop their financial knowledge—all the while encouraging exchanges amongst the users themselves.

- Best « Philanthropy Offering »

Since 2008, BNP Paribas Wealth Management has a philanthropy offering based on two solid solutions: a tailor-made approach piloted by an expert team that is by the side of clients every step of the way, and via the Fondation de l’Orangerie for individual philanthropy, a dedicated vehicle specifically created to receive donations from clients, allowing them to pick from a range of projects to support. This offering is reinforced worldwide by new platforms in both Asia and the US.

- Most-innovative Digital Offering

This award is linked to BNP Paribas efforts to reinforce its client relationships via digital means. For example: new applications launched in Asia and Europe, an online private banker offering in Belgium, and a Business Angel programme in Turkey.
