Aiming to better serve entrepreneur clients, BNP Paribas Wealth Management has conducted the largest scale global research study into successful entrepreneurs learning who and where they are.

BNP Paribas Wealth Management has issued the first edition of its new Global Entrepreneurialism Report which examines the behaviours of successful entrepreneurs and angel investors. Over 2,500 high net worth individuals (HNWI) and ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWI) with a minimum current net worth (excluding primary residence) of USD 2 million and an average of USD 7.6 million. This significant sample, spanning 17 countries across four regions – Europe, Asia, the United States and the Middle East – replied to a survey conducted by Scorpio Partnership.

This year’s publication explores the wealth creation patterns of Angel Investors.

Sofia Merlo, Co-CEO of BNP Paribas Wealth Management, noted “the report reveals angel investors’ commitment as a true asset class, investing close to 10% of their allocation today. As a private bank delivering a holistic approach to our clients, we seek to explore what motivates entrepreneurs when investing and advising companies on their growth path.

Vincent Lecomte, Co-CEO of BNP Paribas Wealth Management, added “This report corresponds to our international presence where we serve successful entrepreneurs from Europe, Asia, the US and the Middle-East. As key contributors to the real economy and to wealth creation, it was our wish to let their voice be heard, sharing their ambitions and their local specificities.”
