A key actor in the financial sector in Europe


Exane was founded in 1990, on the back of a robust business model built around 3 complementary business lines: Cash Equities (BNP Paribas Exane), Structured Solutions (Exane Solutions), and Asset Management (Exane Asset Management).


Exane expanded internationally in order to be as close to clients as possible, with Paris and London as its main offices. Our 800 employees can now be found spread across 9 sites worldwide: Paris, London, Frankfurt, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, Stockholm, New York and San Francisco.

Exane has specialised in European Equities for over 30 years and continues to develop its expertise in each of its 3 business lines, with Research as a core focus.

After a successful 17-year partnership with BNP Paribas, Exane became a subsidiary of BNP Paribas in July 2021. In this framework, Exane brings its strong expertise to strengthen the range of cash equities (execution and research) and derivatives services that BNP Paribas can offer to institutional investors and corporates globally. 






The culture at Exane centres around three fundamentals which are the pillars of its business model: the world of Equities, Investment expertise (trading and asset management), and top-class Research in equities and derivatives.


Excellence, the driving force behind Exane's performance and expertise in its business lines, as well as commitment which acts as a guarantee of its accountability to its clients and forms the basis of its operating dynamic, are core values that have shaped Exane's culture since its creation.


Exane is characterised by its strong entrepreneurial spirit and its continuous desire to rise new challenges, as well as its stringency in terms of risk managemen.
