The sustainable investor for a changing world

Real Assets, Structured Finance and SME Lending


Our Private Debt and Real Assets (PDRA) investment division is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to finance the real economy and uncover compelling investment opportunities.

The PDRA platform seeks to offer a wide range of private debt and real  assets solutions, including corporate loans from large cap to SME loans, structured finance, infrastructure debt and real estate debt. Our strategies enable investors to access a growing range of opportunities while targeting a wide range of risk return profiles.

Our investment philosophy relies on three principles that we believe are key to building value for our clients:

  • Performance is driven by credit quality and appropriate risk pricing
  • The value of proprietary origination channels rely on our unique access to the BNP Paribas financing franchise
  • The positive impact of a sustainable approach to private debt investment through the integration of ESG factors in our process

The PDRA division, headed by David Bouchoucha, has over 50 investment professionals with deep experience through cycles managing over €8 billion of assets.
