BNP Paribas has been present in the United States since the late 1800s and currently has over 16,000 employees in North America. The region is a key hub for the Bank’s global network of 75 countries and nearly 188,000 employees.
BNP Paribas offers its clients a full range of services from investment and retail banking to asset management services. In the United States, the three core businesses of BNP Paribas mirror the Bank’s global organization: Corporate & Institutional Banking and Retail Banking & Services.
Corporate & Institutional Banking provides financing, advisory and capital markets services to corporates, investors and institutional clients. The Bank’s services are provided via four core business lines: Fixed Income, Global Equities and Commodity Derivatives, Corporate Finance and Corporate Banking. Clients are at the core of all of BNP Paribas’ services, and through developing and managing long-term relationships, the Client Coverage and Investor Relationship Management (IRM) teams focus on enabling bankers to provide streamlined services to clients while advising them on a product-neutral basis.
Retail Banking in the US includes both branch networks and a range of other specialized financial services. BancWest Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of BNP Paribas, is the holding company for Bank of the West and First Hawaiian Bank, which serve nearly 3.5 million household and business accounts through over 700 retail branch locations and dozens of commercial banking offices in 20 Western and Midwestern states and overseas in Guam and Saipan.
