BNP Paribas Investment Partners strengthens credit capabilities

RELATED TOPICS​

Martin Fridson is joining BNP Paribas Asset Management, a US registered investment adviser, as global credit strategist within its global credit investment team. 

BNP Paribas Asset Management is a part of the BNP Paribas Investment Partners business line. 

Previously, Fridson (pictured) was the chief executive of Fridson Investment Advisors, which was a fundamental, research-driven US registered investment advisory firm.
 
The global credit team will house all of the credit management expertise – combining 22 credit analysts – of BNP Paribas Investment Partners with a goal of bringing focus and driving performance to the various credit offerings.

Under the leadership of Maryam Muessel, the former chief operating officer of alternatives and Solutions at Fortis Investment Management, which was acquired by BNP Paribas Investment Partners, the global credit team forms part of BNP Paribas Investment Partners’ fixed income division. Muessel reports to Nicolas Chaput, who is the chief investment officer of fixed income and money markets for BNP Paribas Asset Management and is based in Paris.
 
Fridson has over 30 years of broad-ranging experience. He has written several books on finance and in 2000 became the youngest person ever to be inducted into the Fixed Income Analysts Society Hall of Fame.

As head of the strategy unit within global credit, Fridson will contribute to building the team’s research effort and will frame macro views for the global credit team’s mandates.
 
“In 2010, we have seen strong interest from our clients in credit products, in particular high yield strategies. With Martin joining forces with the BNP Paribas Asset Management team, we will gain a deeper understanding of the credit market dynamics and we believe that this will have a positive impact regarding the performance of our clients’ portfolios,” says Chaput.
 
Fridson will be based in New York.
