Baroda BNP Paribas Mutual Fund

BNP Paribas Asset Mgmt India Pvt. Ltd. is one of the world’s largest Asset Management Companies (AMCs) and is present in more than 30 countries, dominating Asia-Pacific, Europe, and America. In the Eurozone alone, it manages net assets worth 2 trillion euros. The AMC was founded in 2000 as a joint venture between the Banque Nationale de Paris (BNP) and Paribas. Two French banks, namely BNCI and CNEP, merged to form BNP in 1966. CNEP was formed to counteract the financial instability caused due to the Revolution of 1848 in France. On the other hand, two investment banks merged in 1872 to give birth to Paribas. The Indian wing of the AMC commenced operations two years later, in 2002.

BNP Mutual Fund, set up in 2004, is under the sponsorship of BNP Paribas Asset Management Asia Limited. Although BNP Paribas AMC is new to the mutual fund market, it has made huge strides. It is the first fund house to integrate Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG). They currently manage 17 trillion rupees in assets in compliance with the ESG report, making BNP a pathbreaking financial institution. 

BNP Mutual Fund holds a 49.9% stake in Fortis Bank Group. They have over 900 teams located across India. BNP Paribas is also the first financial organization to acknowledge the subprime mortgage crisis between 2007 and 2010. On 9th August 2007, BNP Paribas said that redemptions in three mutual funds would be suspended due to fund managers’ inability to evaluate the assets. Many financial experts believe this event led to the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
