Nantes is a vibrant city in every way, and has a dense network of companies, entrepreneurs and investors who require a highly personalised approach for managing their wealth. We want to use the new center to build closer ties with major private investors, top executives and corporate shareholders, and offer them high-level local expertise in wealth engineering and wealth management,” shares Pierre de Pellegars, Head of Wealth Management within BNP Paribas Private Banking.
