BNP Paribas has been investing in private equity, for its own account via its balance sheet, for several decades. In 2008, it set up a dedicated team which co-invests as a minority investor alongside top-tier private equity fund managers in Europe. ​

Following a request from several institutional investors, BNP Paribas decided in 2020 to open up this private equity co-investment strategy to third-party investors by launching the BNP Paribas Agility Co-Invest fund series.​

The second fund in this series, Agility Co-Invest 2, is targeting a size of €700m to €900m, of which €300m will be committed by BNP Paribas for its own account. The fund is seeking to build a diversified portfolio spanning several sectors and investing in different sized companies in Europe.​

What is the fund’s strategy?​

The fund will draw on the BNP Paribas Group’s unique deal origination capabilities and its relationship with around 200 private equity firms to select co-investment opportunities alongside leading private equity firms, such as Ardian, PAI Partners, IK and KKR.​​

The fund invests mainly in Western and Northern Europe, in different sized companies, generally valued above €50 million, and finally across different sectors, in particular healthcare, business services, food & consumer and industrials.​

Lastly, we have an agile portfolio construction approach.​

We are looking for a strong base of resilient assets, in addition to value and growth deals to drive performance.​

Agility track-record​

1. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performances. No guarantee is given on the success, profitability, return or benefit of this investment.
As of 31/12/2023. Track record of BNP Paribas Agility Co-Invest fund’s team, investing for BNP Paribas Principal Investments from 2008 until 2018 and then for BNP Paribas Agility Capital and now for BNP Paribas Asset Management.​

Performance goals are indicative only. There is no guarantee that these goals will be achieved.​

Since our team was created in 2008, we have invested more than €1 billion in 71 equity transactions.​

Of these investments, 20 have been realised, with a total gross multiple of 2.8 times the invested amount, resulting in a 33% gross IRR.​​

The first BNP Paribas Agility Co-Invest fund, launched in 2020, deployed more than €600 million in equity through investments in 40 companies.​

Albeit a recent fund, it has already achieved a gross multiple of 1.3 times, and a 14% gross IRR on these investments.​


Private Equity remains a great opportunity​



Private Equity provides diversification in a portfolio, aiming for high returns to compensate for illiquidity and a long-term maturity. In addition it continues to outperform stock markets over the long term during different economic cycles.​


Good Momentum​

Periods of economic downturn are usually good entry points for Private Equity, particularly funds offering growth and transformation strategies based on operational improvement and digitalisation​.


Attractive returns*​
In this environment of volatility, inflation and rising interest rates, which accentuate performance disparities, it is essential to remain selective and invest with a top-performing and very experienced Private Equity firm.​

*Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performances. No guarantee is given on the success, profitability, return or benefit of this investment.
