Financial News's annual FN100 list of the most influential women in finance has recognised the achievements of two BNP Paribas executives.
On Anne Marie Verstraeten, Financial News said: "Her role is critical in the French bank's strategy and expansion plans. Its group development plan published in March identified the UK, along with Germany and the Nordics, as areas of greatest strategic importance."
The publication also highlighted Sophie Javary's division, comprising mergers and acquisitions and equity capital markets, which "is considered a key driver for future growth."
In compiling the FN100 women list, Financial News canvassed a wide range of market opinion before drawing up a definitive list of the 100 most influential women in finance, assessing their influence and leadership over their company and market sector, as well as career and performance to date.
