Prime Services


As a leading European bank with a prominent global presence, BNP Paribas is one of the few banks globally with a comprehensive suite of investor services. Our multi-asset Prime Services offering provides clients with access to one of the broadest product capabilities across prime brokerage, clearing, and FX prime brokerage.

Prime Brokerage

Our prime brokerage offering includes execution, clearance, settlement and financing. We provide deep and expansive pools of securities lending and inventory supply, with advanced margining capabilities, cross-margining and collateralisation. Leveraging BNP Paribas’ top-tier balance sheet we provide a differentiated source of funding and liquidity.

We are a sophisticated and flexible multi-asset financing platform across both cash and synthetic channels. Through collateral and cash optimisation, we offer a single point of access to treasury strategies, with the ability to convert the treasury function into a source of alpha. Our credit prime platform provides a one-stop-shop to source, execute and access financing in the credit universe, including systematic credit. Our expertise in complex prime financing provides additional sources of funding for less liquid standard assets.

Our Capital Introduction team offers select Prime Services clients and prospects a dedicated team of specialists with diverse global investor relationships and industry expertise. Included in this value-added service are pre- and post-launch resources, industry leading content and events, and digital introductions through BRIDGE by BNP Paribas.

We offer competitive financing and execution across Delta One beta products, including indices, sectors, ETFs and custom baskets. Our dedicated Delta One specialists, structuring and strategy teams offer a range of bespoke products and strategies to fit a variety of clients’ needs.

BNP Paribas’ global equity financing capabilities aim to optimise clients’ balance sheets and enhance yields including yield enhancement of liquid assets, inventory optimisation, alternative yield enhancement and reduction of credit exposure. Our dedicated Quantitative Analytics team provides in-depth analysis on short side events and we draw on our stable and deep pool of inventory for physical and synthetic shorts.
