Partnership with BNP Paribas

Home > Our group > Partnership with BNP Paribas

An innovative and efficient partnership

Since 2004, Cash Equities business has been a core feature of Exane's partnership with BNP Paribas. BNP Paribas entrusted this activity exclusively to Exane for European equities, which it conducts under the Exane BNP Paribas joint brand.


Under this agreement, Exane BNP Paribas provides its expertise in equity Research. The two groups also collaborate closely on ECM (Equity Capital Market) transactions, with BNP Paribas handling origination and Exane BNP Paribas distribution.


The partnership agreement between Exane and BNP Paribas was significantly reinforced in 2010 and 2011. It was renewed in its entirety in April 2015, and in May 2018 for a five-year period. It is built around 3 core elements:


  1. An operational partnership in European cash equities, under the Exane BNP Paribas brand;
  1. A balance sheet partnership, which is particularly well suited to the Derivatives business, providing financing and support for Exane's rating;
  1. A capital partnership uniting the strength of BNP Paribas with the independence of Exane.


This equal partnership strengthens Exane's solid position in European equities and bolsters the Group's financial stability. It also allows it to accelerate its European expansion and create a cycle-long sustainable investment strategy, whilst also maintaining independence.
