Historical & Modern

Our roots go back a long way, with the creation of the Algemeene Nederlandsche Maatschappij in 1822. 41 years later, the Nederlandsche Credit- en Deposito Bank (NCDB) opened its first office in Amsterdam. Through the merger of NCDB and the Banque de Paris in 1872, the first step towards BNP Paribas as we know it today was set.

The bank would continue to be intertwined with Dutch history, granting major loans to the city of Amsterdam on numerous occasions during the nineteenth and twentieth century. BNP Paribas in its current form was created in 2000 through the takeover of the originally Dutch bank Paribas by the number one bank in France, Banque Nationale de Paris (BNP).
