                ALM - Consolidated risk management (3)

n Interest-rate risk is managed for each
  core business on a consolidated basis
  according to the following principles:
  l   Traditional gapping risk is managed by the ALM and
      Treasury Management units
  l   Optional risks linked to retail banking business are
      managed by the ALM unit
  l   The most important residual risks are:
       è the lag-time in adjusting interest rates on funding and loans
         in the event of changes in market rates (margin risk)
       è interest rate risk on call deposits and regulated savings
         deposits (eg savings accounts, home savings plans, ...)

               ALM - Consolidated risk management (4)

n In so far as the system is managed efficiently, BNP
  PARIBAS is only structurally exposed on call
  deposits and regulated savings deposits
  l   = 42% of all customer deposits, and

  l   with a performance improving as interest rates rise

                                       respective strengths

n The organization is ready and the teams have been grouped
  together in the 15 locations due to merger
n From the outset, three financing policy measures have been
   l   systematically aligning the pricing of resources to BNP's pricing
   l   as of mid-February, issuing Euro Medium-Term Notes (EMTN) under
       a single name
   l   integrating the SFS securitization team into the ALM unit, in order to
       monitor the pool of securitizable assets linked to this core business

                           ALM - Benefitting from each bank's
                                          respective strengths
               The BNP PARIBAS merger allowed to :

n reduce the euro balance sheet's overall interest-rate exposure
n reduce the funding costs on all maturities
n clearly improve the liquidity situation in some Asian countries
and in the United States
n significantly broaden the Group's funding base:
   l   deposit-taking capability of the Retail Banking and Private Banking
   l   placement capability of Fixed Income
   l   cash depositors with direct access to the dealing rooms
