Related Topics

BNP Paribas’ Securities Services business has signed an exclusive agreement to acquire HSBC’s hedge fund administration business in several markets, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Ireland, and Luxembourg.

The transfer of services from HSBC to BNP Paribas will be offered to 25 clients globally and will involve the integration of certain employees within BNP Paribas’ expert teams.

BNP Paribas says the proposed transfer of services is fully aligned with the company’s integrated bank strategy, which enables the bank’s clients to benefit from a full suite of front-to-back liquid alternative and hedge fund outsourcing solutions – from core fund administration, through to depositary, custody, cash, FX, financing, global markets and prime brokerage solutions.

In a press statement, Philippe Benoit, Head of Strategic Business Development and Transformation, Securities Services, BNP Paribas, said: “The liquid alternatives and hedge funds sector is a focus area for BNP Paribas. We have steadily invested in this field, with a strong emphasis on our integrated and innovative banking solution range across BNP Paribas’ Securities Services and Global Markets business lines. Our hedge fund administration offering fully leverages the strengths of BNP Paribas’ integrated banking model, combined with our far-reaching approach to digital innovation and client service. The integration of HSBC’s hedge fund administration business is an opportunity to reinforce our position to meet the ever-evolving needs of hedge funds and grow alongside them through sustainable partnerships.”

The agreement is expected to complete by the end of 2024, following the finalisation of client migrations.
