BNP Paribas Asset Management is the investment management arm of BNP Paribas, one of the world’s major financial institutions. With more than 700 investment professionals and around 600 client servicing specialists, BNP Paribas Asset Management serves individual, corporate and institutional investors in 70 countries around the world. Since 2002, BNP Paribas Asset Management has been a major player in sustainable and responsible investing.
Within BNP Paribas Asset Management France, “MAQS” (Multi-Asset, Quantitative and Solutions) has been created in November 2017 and combines the former:
- THEAM, whose main expertise was the management of Model Driven, Index, and Protected investment strategies,
- Multi-Asset Solutions, whose main expertise was the management of traditional balanced strategies, customized balanced solutions, and Liability Driven and Fiduciary solutions,
- CamGestion, whose main expertise was the management of multi-asset and fixed income investment solutions tailored to the specific needs of insurance clients, as well as equity strategies.
Today, MAQS manages various passive strategies, including ETFs and index funds; a range of protected strategies; single and multi-factor smart beta strategies across all asset classes; capitalizing and income generating multi asset solutions including target risk and target date retirement solutions; and pension and insurance specific investment solutions with non-traditional benchmarks. Finally, the department includes a ‘client advisory and solutions’ activity that aims to advise and design solutions across BNP Paribas Asset Management France’s full offering, including fiduciary and multi-management solutions.
Within quantitative management, MAQS also benefits from a long-standing relationship with BNP Paribas’ Global Markets division, a partnership that will be strengthened within the new MAQS division.
