Awards for Excellence 2007: Best Structured Products House
BNP Paribas has shown strength in meeting client needs by innovating across a wide range of asset classes.
Also shortlisted in this category:
Judging by the number of banks that pitched for this award and the number of bankers present at the pitch meetings (an average of six), structured products is clearly a field in which many investment banks have ambitions.
Among the many candidates, Deutsche Bank and Société Générale have great reputations but failed to shine as much as shortlisted Barclays Capital, which stood out more for a number of innovations, particularly in commodities, and UBS for its surprisingly impressive and under-appreciated skills.
BNP Paribas, however, continues to stand above the rest for its strength across asset classes, and deserves recognition as the best structured products house for the second consecutive year.
An integral part of the bank’s success has been its approach to its clients and its ability to adapt products across asset classes, a skill that almost every bank claims but which BNP Paribas can demonstrate.
