BNPP eyes Islamic finance as part of Malaysian expansion
BNP Paribas is planning to pick as many as 12 bankers to help start an Islamic finance team in Kuala Lumpur, part of a plan that could lead to 30 new front office staff joining the bank’s Malaysian unit, according to local market participants.
The French bank has earmarked Malaysia as a strategic priority for its global business plans and is looking to grow its operations in Kuala Lumpur with a number of key hires. It is also trying to get authorisation to start building an Islamic banking business.
