BNP Paribas Mutual Fund

The asset manager for a changing world

Menu

The story of BNP Paribas dates back to the 19th century, when the banks that would eventually form the Group first opened and expanded. Fueled by Europe's extraordinary industrial growth, the banks were able to set aside enough savings to finance crucial economic development. From its early beginnings to the present day, the Group's evolution offers an opportunity to explore two centuries of banking history, in addition to that of Europe and the world as a whole.

Produced from our archives, the BNP Paribas documentary retraces our Bank's history from 1822 through to the present day.
