Bernard Opetit is the head of global equity derivatives trading at Banque de Paris, a subsidiary of the BNP Paribas Group, an international bank with branches in more than 60 countries. The BNP Paribas Group has total assets of over $269 billion. Bernard Opetit is a tall and introverted Frenchman.
Regardless of nationality or location, Banque de Paris is different from other major banks, it is full of French flavor, and its London branch is located in the west of London rather than in the city center (what a big difference!).
The French always occupy a hall wherever they go. The crystal chandelier emits a hazy light, adding to the overall style. It can't help but evoke a stale idea: elegant but indescribable.
The meeting room is decorated with some memorabilia of completed plans and famous French symbols, such as Notre Dame de Paris, Champs Elysees, and Eiffel Tower, and even the drinking water is Evian and Perrier brands.
Bernard Opetit mainly engages in trading derivative products such as stock options and index options, covering all major markets and some emerging markets, such as Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and most Southeast Asian countries, and now has added Hungary, Russia, and Poland.
"We have customer service and asset management businesses, customer service is mainly to provide index products, we play the role of dealers. In addition, we also have a fairly large asset management business, not just securities business."
