BNP Paribas Capital Partners

Broad expertise in alternatives manager selection and infrastructure

BNP Paribas Capital Partners (BNPP CP) selects and monitors absolute return and alternatives in UCITS hedge funds, offshore hedge funds, private equity funds, and opportunistically in real estate funds, and distressed and private debt funds, across most geographies and strategies. BNPP CP’s acumen can be accessed through service models ranging from one-off due diligence reports and advisory buy lists to traditional, discretionary investment management via managed accounts or comingled funds of funds. BNPP CP also advises on an affiliate’s seeding and incubation of investment managers and funds, and provides administration and infrastructure for private equity funds.

Customised solutions

BNPP CP are of the opinion that for absolute return and hedge funds managers, traditional, one size fits all, funds of funds are insufficiently flexible for many clients, while direct investing can be too labour intensive for others. Therefore customisation, through bespoke advisory and managed account solutions, is sought after and fee structures are flexible enough to accommodate a wide range of budgets. Advisory mandates could cost from EUR 200,000 for a buy list and increase to EUR 250,000 with some ongoing monitoring. All managers on BNPP CP’s advisory buy lists are allocated to by the group’s discretionary mandates. Where BNPP CP is also carrying out portfolio construction and rebalancing, an asset-related performance fee can be added. For a fully-fledged fund management remit, both management and performance fees apply but are not likely to be 1 and 10 nowadays. “A performance fee of 10% can still be obtained, but tends to apply above a hurdle rate which might be 3%” says BNPP CP CEO Gilles Guerin. But whichever level of service is chosen, BNPP CP takes pride in “open and transparent communication and we are an extension of our clients’ investment teams” he stresses. Guerin also thinks that BNPP CP “are more flexible and client-specific than some larger and more generalist shops”.
