BNP Paribas IP Appoints Global Sales Head

Amisha Mehta, Deputy Editor, London, 12 September 2016


The asset management arm of France's BNP Paribas is looking to boost global business with the appointment of a former Deutsche Bank executive.

BNP Paribas Investment Partners has appointed James Dilworth to the newly-created role of global head of sales.

Dilworth previously worked at Deutsche Bank as chief executive, Germany for Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management Investment and global head of active asset management. Before that, he held various executive and business development roles at Allianz Global Investors. He has also worked at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, where he helped enhance the firm’s European footprint, with a focus on Germany.

He left Deutsche Bank earlier this year following the separation of Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management into two separate units. Last month, Daniel Kalczynski and Anke Sahlén became the bank’s co-heads of wealth management in Germany. Meanwhile, former AXA executive Nicolas Moreau was recently appointed to succeed Quintin Price as chief of Deutsche Asset Management.

Based in London, Dilworth will be responsible for developing BNP Paribas IP’s business with institutional and retail investors as well as distribution networks. He joins the executive committee and will report to Frédéric Janbon, CEO of BNP Paribas IP. 

“His extensive experience of the investment management industry gained at both American and European firms, and his established track record of building and growing businesses will be a considerable asset in the development of BNP Paribas Investment Partners’ business globally,” said Janbon.
