When the going gets tough
2022 was the 200th anniversary of the oldest of the institutions that came to make up BNP Paribas. In those two centuries the bank has lived through innumerable crises and turned them into opportunities. In the past year – and the decade that preceded it – it did so again. BNP Paribas is IFR’s Bank of the Year.
2022 was a year when the dog didn’t bark. There were many significant events but from the perspective of finance and the markets, what is perhaps most interesting is what didn’t happen.
