BNP Paribas Wealth Management launched its Next Generation Programme for the seventh year this week on 19 and 20 June 2013 in Hong Kong.
The Next Generation Programme aims to provide value-added services to BNP Paribas Wealth Management clients. Since its initiation, the programme has seen increasing demand and popularity.
Joining from various cities in Asia, participants who attended the programme comprised the next generation of clients or prospects of BNP Paribas Wealth Management. The programme is designed to offer a platform for participants to gain wealth management knowledge and prepare themselves for the next steps when they take over their family wealth and businesses, or explore new business opportunities on their own.
In recent years, the programme has gone beyond wealth management essentials. This year, with a strong line-up of internal speakers from the bank and external speakers from the corporate world and academia, the programme covered a range of topics from investment to entrepreneurship, joining the family business to philanthropy. This year’s two-day programme had the most number of attendees who are aged from 25 to 35, and it also saw a number of keynote addresses from second-generation business leaders.
Another important objective of the programme is to provide a platform for the participants to build networks, not just with BNP Paribas Wealth Management experts who manage their family wealth, but also with like-minded young adults like themselves. The occasion was a valuable opportunity for the participants to build an international network for their personal and business aspirations.
Mrs. Mignonne Cheng, Chairman and CEO of BNP Paribas Wealth Management Asia Pacific said, “As a private bank, our objective has always been to help our clients and their families achieve their aspirations and goals. The Next Generation Programme gives our experts a chance to show the next generation of our clients how we can help them manage their family wealth, and how we can facilitate a smooth succession when it’s time for the next generation to take over the reins.”
