Inspiration For Investments

NEXTGEN PARIS - JUNE 2 to 4, 2019

With the help of INSEAD Business School

Do you want to build your financial knowledge whether you know nothing about investing or you do have notions? 


This NextGen event mixes talks on specialized subjects with active learning on new ways to add value to one’s investments… all while using innovative business models and disruptive technologies.

NextGen offers the opportunity to network with about 40 international young leaders—and to attend the quarterfinals of the French Open at Roland Garros in the prestigious BNP Paribas VIP lounge.

With our partners at INSEAD*, NextGeners will also participate in a unique learning Experience: leading a disruptive, innovative project for a global pseudo-company in a VUCA world (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity).  This Experience goes from taking a new product from idea to market, with all the associated execution hurdles along the way.  The Experience covers topics of customer centricity, agile execution, engaging with internal & external stakeholders, fundraising, international scaling, and selling your vision.

NextGeners will identify customer pains and needs, construct a value proposition, and build a minimum viable product… one that satisfies both those in your pseudo-company and your final clients.

And taking care of the behavioural part: NextGeners will learn to deal with building, borrowing, and buying decisions within different organizational cultures.

*L’INSEAD BUSINESS SCHOOL is a recognized academic institute, providing higher education in the discipline of social and economic sciences and other related disciplines. It offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, executive education and research activities.

Prime educative content on how to drive innovation through investments.

In June, BNP Paribas Wealth Management kicked off the NextGen Experience in Paris with a focus on building knowledge and understanding the techniques to sustainably grow wealth and business. The event combined lectures on specialised topics and active learning on new ways to add value through investments, innovative business models and disruptive technologies.

The attendees, about 30 NextGeners from 17 different countries, also had the opportunity to visit the world’s biggest startup campus Station F, and Ecole 42, a school based on peer-to-peer learning.          


Peer sharing and thought leadership discussions that help participants to explore challenges around 3 key pillars: family business, entrepreneurship and social engagement

2017 marked the 10th anniversary of the NextGen program in Asia. This year's program was based on three pillars: purpose-led businesses, family business legacy and entrepreneurial spirit.

Sixteen high-powered speakers joined the different sessions and interactive panel discussions, delving into topics ranging from social investments to impact investing, growth hacking to unlocking entrepreneurial mindsets.

Helene Li, Head of Strategic Planning, Brand & Communications, APAC and Anton Wong, Head of Key Client Group, APAC, co-curators of the Asia program, share insights into putting together a successful NextGen Program for our clients:


In the heart of the Silicon Valley, explore new ways of thinking and strategies to make a more meaningful positive impact in today’s changing global economy. 

Family Wealth Advisors, a part of the Bank of the West Wealth Management Group, hosted the third event in the 2017 Next Generation Experience series in Silicon Valley this September.

46 attendees from 18 countries gathered to discuss entrepreneurship, family wealth and purpose investing. They watched live pitch sessions from entrepreneurs, met venture capitalists and founders of socially responsible companies, and developed long lasting relationships with peers around the world. Bank of the West was thrilled to partner with BNP Paribas on this event series.
