As the N° 1 private bank in France, with €127 billion in assets under management (November 2023), 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 offering a dedicated art advisory service which was founded in 1975. The team, staffed by art historians with experience on the art-market, proposes tailor-made art services and solutions for clients of the private bank; these include accompanying clients who wish to buy or sell paintings, drawings, and sculpture dating from the Renaissance into the 21st century.
BNP Paribas Private Banking is proud to be Art Paris’s "official premium partner". Contributing to the promotion of culture and artistic creation in France is a mission that is particularly close to its heart. In 2023, BNP Paribas Private Banking supported the Centre Pompidou Endowment Fund “Accelerations” to participate in the development and dissemination of contemporary creation.
