BNP Paribas Investment Partners (BNPP IP) uses the advisory services of FundQuest Advisor (FQA) for the selection, appointment and monitoring of external managers and funds (external to BNP Paribas group). FQA is a 100% owned BNPP IP subsidiary and is the fund selection arm of the group, with a focus on long only investment products invested in listed securities. FQA provides recommendations for the selection of external managers to BNPP IP:

  1. For the delegation of management of BNPP IP products (white labelling). In those cases of external delegation of internal funds, each external manager is required to respect the minimum ESG practices implemented by BNPP IP (notably through the exclusion of a list of companies that do not respect UN Global Compact principles, or that are involved in controversial activities/businesses).
  2. For multi-management products invested in external funds. FQA provides buy-lists of external funds in which BNP Paribas Asset Management/BNPP IP funds of funds can invest. In those cases, FQA gathers and analyses information about Responsible Investment policies applied by external managers, and has developed a proprietary ESG scoring methodology regarding ESG and SRI practices applied at the asset management entity level and at an individual fund /strategy level.
