These are the new bankers earning $950k at BNP Paribas

Once upon a time, French bank BNP Paribas didn't actually have managing directors. This is no longer the case. While Swiss banks like UBS now attempt to dial-down on hierarchy by obscuring the job titles of senior staff, BNP Paribas has been proudly announcing its new MD class internally.

The bank doesn't share the list of its new MDs with journalists, but insiders have given us the names of its new MDs in the investment banking division. They were announced internally around three weeks ago. Unfortunately, we don't have the names for BNP's promotions in Asia, or in its markets business. Those who've made the list are likely to earn around $950k, which is the amount that BNP Paribas paid its material risk takers in 2020 (it's yet to release the numbers for 2021). [Some BNP MDs point out that they're not classified as risk takers and therefore earn less than this amount.]

We count around 16 women on a list of around 65 people, which isn't a great strike rate for female promotions, but at around 25% is close to the average elsewhere. Eight of the new female MDs are in the Americas, where the proportion of female promotes is closer to 27%.

Just 10 of BNP's new banking MDs are in France. Seven are in London.
