A responsible asset manager

At BNP Paribas Asset Management, responsibility is at the very heart of who we are and what we do. Which means that we:

  • Apply Environmental, Sustainability and Governance criteria to all our mutual funds
  • Run a broad range of Sustainable and Responsible Investment funds
  • Engage with the companies in which we invest to encourage them to improve their practices
  • Strive to act responsibly in all of our own day-to-day activities


Strict risk management

Minimising risk is an important way of maximising returns in our portfolios, so we manage risk in all its forms. To this end, we have experienced risk management experts both within our investment teams and in a centralised oversight unit that has developed a risk platform with in-house risk tools and external vendor solutions.
