BNP Paribas multi-awarded by Asia Risk!

September 18, 2019

BNP Paribas has again been recognized for its client-focus and innovation in the 2019 Asia Risk awards, with big wins for Japan House of the Year and the publication’s inaugural Custodian of the Year.



Eric Raynaud, CEO of BNP Paribas in Asia Pacific commented “These two Asia Risk awards recognize our commitment to our clients and our team’s focus on innovating with new solutions.  This is a wonderful reward for the hard work and dedication of our teams”.

Asia Risk heard first-hand from our clients about the solutions we’re providing to help them grow, despite the challenging external environment. We were praised for our ability to innovate and find new solutions.

“BNP Paribas has applied its cross-asset mindset to its traditional distribution business and insurance solutions activities, where its teams cover all asset classes,” Asia Risk said of our Japan win. “This has allowed BNP Paribas to be nimble and quickly adapt to changing market conditions, and identify investment opportunities. It has also relied on its global pricing and trading platform – Smart Derivatives – to automatically serve clients as it manages more than 2,500 QIS strategies.”

BNP Paribas Securities Services’ ability to innovate was similarly recognized, with Asia Risk commenting: “The services for which it is winning mandates include traditional areas of work, such as custody, investment administration and performance reporting, but also innovative new lines such as data-as-a-service, which help it to support firms as they evolve into more digital ways of working, and clients with more quantitative approaches to investment.”

It is the third time in the past four years that we have scooped top honors for our Japan business and an exciting first win for the newly created Custodian category in Asia, demonstrating our excellence and client-focus.

Our teams were in Singapore to collect the awards and you can find below the full write-ups, along with social media posts for you to share with your clients. Congratulations again to all involved!
