They will all report to Michael Rietbrock, director of equity research at BNP Paribas Exane Americas.

Rietbrock added: “We welcome Moses, Sam, Stefan, Andrew, and Kevin to the US BNP Paribas Exane team.  It’s an exciting time to join the platform and their contributions will further expand our global equities offerings to institutional clients.  We’re very proud to have such talented analysts and look forward to offering BNP Paribas Exane’s unrivalled services to our clients.”

Along with the new recruits, the firm intends to increase its coverage of US stocks from 275 to over 500 by 2025, first concentrating on the consumer, healthcare, technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT), and industrials sectors. 

The bank’s aggressive efforts to increase the number of analysts, sector specialists, traders, sales traders, and salespeople it employs support this expansion of coverage for U.S. stocks. 

Currently, the team covers more than 966 stocks worldwide.

After a fruitful 17-year collaboration, BNP Paribas purchased 100% of Exane in 2021, and in November of the same year, the company introduced BNP Paribas Exane in the United States. Since then, the bank has matched its global markets platform with BNP Paribas Exane’s offering.
