BNP Paribas launches Tracker Certificates

August 17, 2015

Dear Sir or Madam, A usual question among investors is the question which stocks will outperform their benchmark. An interesting factor here: the influence of the founder of the company in subsequent years. That companies, whose founders are still operationally active in their company, operate economically seems reasonable. And that their stocks often outperform others, is also proven by studies. Therefore founder-run companies are very popular on the stock market Via tracker certificates on the Solactive Founder-run Companies TR Index BNP Paribas now offers investors access to 30 founder-run businesses. The shares are equally weighted; up to ten shares of a sector can be considered in the Index. Voting rights of the founder shall not exceed 50 percent. This ensures that the founders will retain a high impact, but at the same time cannot act completely against the interests of shareholders. Please find details in the attached press release : PM_CH_ENG_Founderun Companies _Solactive Index v2 Kind regards
