At BNP Paribas Asset Management, we see ourselves as having an impact through the types of products we launch, our stewardship, and the actions within our company and the wider community.
Thus, a recently launched product focuses on inclusive growth; our stewardship seeks to address gender diversity; within BNPP AM, we are working to promote more women to key positions; and in the community, we are advocating that women get the recognition they deserve.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns.
Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).
Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
