Who are we?

Based in Paris, BNP Paribas' Economic Research Department is composed of economists and statisticians:

  • The OECD Economics team, in charge of macroeconomic and financial forecasts, and the team of statisticians, both headed by Hélène Baudchon.
  • The Emerging Economies and Country Risk team, led by François Faure and assisted by Christine Peltier, responsible for assessing country risk and its components.
  • The Banking Economics team, led by Laurent Quignon, studies the banking systems of major developed countries and the impact of prudential standards.
