FundForum Asia, Hong Kong, 14 – 16 October


BNP Paribas occupies a niche that is quite unlike those of other custodians: in a field of strong multi-local and global custodian peers, we are both a strong global custodian and a local custodian, not only in the Asia-Pacific region and Europe but also in the Americas. This allows us to be at the forefront of market changes all around the world.

Since expanding into Asia more than ten years ago we have built out our geographic presence and rolled out our multi-asset solutions.

We believe that being the best asset services provider is about bringing value to our clients and the market. Leveraging our sustainable business mind-set, we bring our clients:

  1. Cross border expertise
  2. Innovative, client-centric solutions

BNP Paribas – Cross border experts

We help clients to navigate the complex regulations across the region. This is demonstrated by being the first provider to be chosen to support clients to use some of the new cross border schemes – for example the HK-Switzerland Mutual Recognition of Funds, and we support our clients’ cross border fund distribution through the new HK-UK, HK-France, and HK-Lux MRFs. We guide clients on their UCITs fund distribution strategy, given our European and Asian depth of expertise, and are working with a client planning to be the first to use the Asian Region Funds Passport. For the new HK Open-ended fund company (OFC) structure, and also for Singapore’s Variable Capital Company (VCC) and the Australian Corporate Collective Investment Vehicle (CCIV) we are working with clients prior to the launches.

BNP Paribas – Innovative, client-centric solutions

Our strategic approach to transformative innovation is to partner with Fintechs, Regtechs and clients to co-create solutions.

Working with them brings us agility and faster innovation enables us to deliver more value to clients. For example, with Fortia we aim to transform depositary banking thanks to artificial intelligence, machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), to help the fund industry meet rising compliance requirements and manage mounting volumes of data.

New technologies are only as good as their ability to solve a client problem. AI, machine learning, NLP and virtual agents are being used to enhance our operational efficiency with value-added automation. At the end of the day it’s about efficiently delivering best in class services.

A recent example is the launch of our innovative Multi Approved Partner broker model (MAP model) for the Stock Connect which helped to win Best Custodian for Stock Connect from The Asset for its value as a connection platform between our buy-side and sell-side clients.

Our team of locally-based experts are here to support you in your growth journey, whether it is navigating complex regulations to access new markets such as China or India, or finding ways together to address our climate emergency.

I look forward to meeting you at Fund Forum or speaking with you to see how we can help you further.
