Combining quantitative know-how with fund management expertise
The THEAM Quant Funds range offers quantitative funds leveraging on over 30 years of experience from Global Markets at BNP Paribas Corporate and Institutional Banking & BNP Paribas Asset Management.
It is positioned at the crossroad of the three major types of Asset Management: Active, Rule-based and Alternative investment management techniques.
We aim to complement traditional asset management, compete with hedge fund strategies, provide alternatives to trackers and bring innovative defensive or risk-managed solutions.
Our range of funds is designed to answer current and forward-looking investors’ needs with various risk/return profiles, from equity funds including factor investing or high conviction stock-picking, to highly flexible multi-asset funds, as well as single or multi risk premia alternatives, defensive and capital efficient investments.

BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM) is the asset management arm of the BNP Paribas Group.
It manages EUR 421 billion in assets as at 31 March 2019. Within BNPP AM, “MAQS” (Multi Asset, Quantitative and Solutions) oversees all systematic funds that are part of the THEAM Quant range. These are based on strategies created by the Global Markets quantitative teams of BNP Paribas Corporate and Institutional Banking and developed as a joint collaboration between the two entities since 2004.
Building a track record since 2004, when the first quantitative strategies started being developed, the THEAM Quant range has broadened substantially and adapted to changing market conditions and needs.
While in 2007, launch date for GURU, one of our flagship strategies, market requested unconstrained alpha generators, in 2017 we launched a new strategy, Equity World DEFI Market Neutral, responding to a need for a product outperforming in uncertain market conditions while controlling its risk and volatility.
In parallel, while society at large continues, increasingly, to address climate change and sustainability issues, we are, in line with BNP Paribas’ long term group level engagement, developing innovative and impactful SRI solutions.
