Today innovation is everywhere. BNP Paribas recognizes and encourages innovation in all its forms and that’s why it organizes every year the Group Innovation Awards.

In 2010, 24 awards were given in 6 countries in the following categories: social commitment, environment, brand, process optimisation, managerial practice encouraging innovation, re-use, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, cross-selling, products and services.

In this focus, BNP Paribas presents its award winners.

This week, discover the corporate innovation award 2010 given to the Portfolio Optimisation team, Fixed Solutions at Corporate Investment Banking (CIB) for its project “Interest rate policy : what impact?” in the category “Products and Services”.

In today’s competitive world, in addition to operational performance, companies are increasingly looking for ways to optimize their balance sheet. This innovation proposes a new approach to determine the optimal fixed-floating mix and duration based on the impact on valuation. For many investment grade companies, this approach totally changes the balance sheet structure and improves valuation by 5 to 15%.

Stanley Myint, Head of the Portfolio Optimisation team for CIB, explains to us what the project “Interest rate policy: what impact ?” is about.
