BNP Paribas Corporate & Investment Banking appoints Stefano Blotto to help spearhead the banks European coverage of institutional accounts.

Stefano is based in London and reports to Talbot Stark, Global Relationship Manager for Fixed Income, Equities and Commodity Derivatives coverage.

Stefano joins the Institutional Relationship Management (IRM) Group, which was formed in January 2009 to cover the institutional sector across the full range of capital market products. Over the last three years, BNP Paribas has made significant strides in developing its Flow, Trading and Execution Services across the entire span of capital markets.

This success has been mirrored by the growth in revenues from both “traditional” and “alternative” investment managers. The IRM Group leverages on growth of BNP Paribas Hedge Fund Relationship Management (HFRM) Group and provides an integrated offering to institutional clients.

Stefano previously worked at Merrill Lynch and brings a wealth of experience and client sector knowledge to the team. He held a number of senior roles during his twelve years at Merrill Lynch, including co-Head of the Investor Client Coverage Group. Prior to his time there, Stefano ran Fixed Income Sales to Italy at Credit Suisse and Goldman Sachs.

BNP Paribas now has three senior Institutional Relationship Managers based in Europe, two senior Relationship Managers based in the Americas with further appointments planned for both the Americas and Asia, which confirms the banks commitment to institutional client coverage.

“BNP Paribas continues to grow its institutional client business and now has over fifteen professionals dedicated to serving our global institutional and hedge fund clients,” says Talbot Stark. “We are confident that with Stefanos talents and proven track record, we will continue to make strides to become the top provider of flow solutions to these core client segments.”
