Celebrating Innovation at BNP Paribas

December 12, 2018

Last November, a week was dedicated to celebrating innovation within BNP Paribas, through the Wealth Management Innovation Awards and the International Financial Services Rising Up days.

Wealth Management Innovation Awards

This year 10 nominees were pitching their projects, hoping to convince the jury and win a Wealth Management innovation awards. BNP Paribas in Switzerland presented two local innovative projects. Iphen, a secure digital platform which allow our teams to exchange documents with clients and external partners, and Drive! a digital solution to follow commercial targets. Drive’s unique solution seduced the jury and became a WM innovation laureate.  width=Alongside the Wealth Management Innovation Awards, a day of discovery was prepared for the nominees: a learning expedition with Schoolab.It. This was an opportunity to network with nominees, colleagues, jury members and explore new locations, new ways of working, be inspired by new trends, exchange with start uppers and so much more!

International Financial Services Rising Up Days

During the same week, transformation and innovation players congregated to the IFS rising up days. The IFS Rising Up days offered inspiring and empowering conferences led by major external speakers on topics ranging from smart cities to nudge management, to open banking and quantum computing. The participants were also able to look beyond banking, towards engagement and learn how the Handicap International NGO completely reinvented itself in the past few years. Furthermore, this was an opportunity to network, mingle, to exchange on projects, to inspire each other, to be inspired and to look together to their common future. BNP Paribas in Switzerland was able to showcase the Swiss Wealth Management projects Iphen, Drive! and WM Marketing Dashboard, a tool for relationship managers to follow as well as Athena, a secure channel to exchange data with Group decision makers while complying with Swiss regulations..
