BNP Paribas Banque Privée is the leading French private bank with a total of €129bn in assets under management as of December 2023. It helps manage, organise, increase and pass on the wealth of customers, which include independent professionals (such as architects, lawyers and doctors), company directors and start-ups, to. The bank offers a wide range of services in financial engineering, sustainable finance, wealth engineering, credit structuring and property. Moreover, BNP Paribas Banque Privée has, for many years now, been providing expertise in areas in which “passion” plays a role, such as philanthropy, forestry, vineyards and art.

In fact, BNP Paribas Banque Privée decided to create an art advisory service as early as 1975 , becoming the first ever bank to do so. Its team of art historians provides customers with personal advice and bespoke services concerning the purchase and sale of works of art, mainly paintings sculptures and drawings. This support is provided in close consultation with the private banking team to develop a global wealth management strategy with, if required, input from our consultants specialising in wealth engineering and philanthropy.

BNP Paribas Banque Privée is proud to be the “official premium partner” of Art Paris. Its contribution to promoting the arts and creativity in France is a role that is particularly close to its heart. In 2023, it also supported the Centre Pompidou Accélérations endowment fund as a way of contributing to the development and promotion of contemporary creation.

In 2024, its support of the French scene reaches a new level with the creation of the €30,000 BNP Paribas Banque Privée Prize. A Focus on the French Scene in collaboration with Art Paris. This year’s prize is awarded to one of the artists selected as part of the “Fragile Utopias” focus curated by art historian Éric de Chassey.
