Copyright Violation[edit]

The text under "Profile:Corporate and Investment Banking" is taken, verbatim, from http://entreprises.bnpparibas.fr/BNP-Paribas-investment-banking. I have deleted it. --Max power 14:00, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Contradiction?[edit]

The text says: Originally the Compagnie Financière de Paris et des Pays-Bas (Finance Corporation of Paris and the Netherlands), the Compagnie Financière de Paribas became simply Paribas in 1998 after acquiring the Compagnie Bancaire. How is this compatible with the fact that the original deviser of the name Paribas is the Flemish artist and entrepreneur Bobbejaan Schoepen, who invented the name in the beginning of the 60s? The name Paribas existed long before 1998. Peeper 01:15, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:BNP Paribas logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BNP Paribas logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 00:49, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Companies tag[edit]

I've rated the company "Top" on the importance scale, the rationale being that is is one of the largest banks in Europe, as well as ranked 25th in the Fortune Global 500. If anyone disagrees, I'll be happy to discuss. --Gimlei (talk to me) 12:18, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

History[edit]

The first paragraph of "history" mentions two institutions which are not subsequently named and thus seem to have nothing whatsoever to do with BNP Paribas. Can someone connect the first paragraph with any of the institutions mentioned in the second paragraph or later? C. Cerf (talk) 20:43, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

BNP Paribas exposure to the PIIGS debt?[edit]

I'm kind of shocked that there is no mention of the fact BNP Paribas has the highest exposure to debts of the so called PIIGS countries. This seems a major omission. Please see the linked illustration, http://si.wsj.net/public/resources/images/P1-BD062_FRBANK_NS_20111020184817.jpg Here's the article that goes with the illustration. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204485304576641561540266494.html Luitgard (talk) 02:59, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Headquarters photo[edit]

The photo in the infobox is not of the BNP Paribas headquarters, as the caption says, but of BNP Paribas Investment Partners (see Comptoir national d'escompte de Paris#Headquarters building). Either the caption should be changed or the photo. Mats (talk) 20:15, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

sanctions[edit]

How is a French bank responsible to uphold sanctions imposed by another country?--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 09:18, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I wondered that too, the article doesn't explain why the U.S has the right to do this.--English Bobby (talk) 12:47, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Because it does business in the United States. --ThaddeusB (talk) 14:46, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello,

I'm a new Wikipedia user, so I don't want to make beginner's mistakes, but maybe somebody more experienced can enlighten me and help me make edits as appropriate.

Isn't the sentence

"BNP Paribas has one of the highest credit ratings in its peer group with the long term debt of the group currently ranked A+ by S&P, A2 by Moody's and A+ by Fitch."

subjective, and possible advertising?

Moreover, the link given as a reference

http://www.fitchratings.com/corporate/ratings/issuer_content.cfm?issr_id=80359629

seems to be broken.

  • I think your assessment is valid. This page may be of assistance if you are doubting whether or not to edit: WP:BRD. Also, WP:REF explains how references function in wikipedia. Vrac (talk) 15:07, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
