As the no.1 private bank in France, with €121 billion in assets under management at the end of 2022, BNP Paribas Private Bank supports its preeminent family clients, the liberal professions, business owners and start-uppers in the management, organization, valuation and transmission of their wealth. It has a broad offer in financial engineering, sustainable finance, tax planning, credit structuring and real estate. In addition the Private Bank has many years of expertise in what can be termed “passion investments”: philanthropy, forestry, vineyards and art.
BNP Paribas was the first private bank to have a dedicated art advisory service which was founded in 1975. Its team, staffed by art historians, proposes personalized advice and tailor-made services for the purchase and sale of works of art, mainly paintings, drawings and sculpture. In close consultation with private bankers and calling on tax planning and philanthropy teams where necessary the Private Bank’s art advisory service can become part of a client’s global wealth strategy.
BNP Paribas Private Banking is proud to be Art Paris’s "Official Premium Partner" for its 25th anniversary edition. Contributing to the promotion of culture and artistic creation in France is a mission that is particularly close to its heart. At the end of 2022, the Private Bank announced its support for the Centre Pompidou Accelerations endowment fund which fosters the development and promotion of contemporary creation.
