Greenwich's annual rankings of the top banks for corporates have been published for both Asia Pacific and Europe.
BNP Paribas breaks into Top 5 in Asian corporate banking and cash management – and maintains its market-leading position in Europe.
BNP Paribas' ongoing growth in Asia Pacific means it has now entered the top five for corporate banking and cash management in the region. Meanwhile, it has bolstered its position as the No. 1 bank for corporates in Europe.
Asia PacificBNP Paribas is firmly established itself as a leading European bank in the Asia Pacific region. It is now ranked in the top-five for "Asian Large Corporate Banking Market Penetration" and "Asian Large Corporate Cash Management Market Penetration" in the 2020 Greenwich Asian Large Corporate Banking and Cash Management study.
For Paul Yang, CEO of Corporate and Institutional Banking in Asia Pacific, believes the rankings reflect BNP Paribas' consistent support for its clients with a breadth of solutions that can only come from a large, diversified bank. "We look forward to maintaining the good momentum and partnering further with our corporate clients to deliver on our strong Asia Pacific platform," he says.
BNP Paribas also showed strong progress in three key Asian markets:
- #1 Quality Leader in Asian Large Corporate Banking in South Korea
- #1 Quality Leader in Asian Large Corporate Cash Management in China
- #1 Quality Leader in Asian Large Corporate Cash Management in Singapore
The Greenwich report noted, "While BNP Paribas is well-recognised for the strength of its trade and structured finance franchise, the bank has also stepped into the Top-5 space as a credible large corporate banking and cash management provider in Asia."
" BNP Paribas reinforces its position as the No. 1 bank for corporates in Europe and is now top five for corporates in Asia."
Chye Kin Wee, Head of Transaction Banking, Asia Pacific, said, "This additional recognition complements our #1 positions in Trade Finance. We have built a strong Transaction Banking platform through the hard work of our teams across Asia Pacific and BNP Paribas can proudly offer a full breadth of solutions for our corporate clients, from Cash Management to Trade & Supply Chain Finance."
Mahesh Kini, Head of Cash Management, Asia Pacific, said: "I am very proud of what our team has achieved in the past year. It is very encouraging to note that our improved ranking to Top 5 is supported by an increase in number of citations by clients who recognise BNP Paribas as one of the leaders in the cash management business in APAC."
