BNP Paribas CIB Polska will launch the second Shared Services Center in Krakow

BNP Paribas Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB), part of the global BNP Paribas Group, will launch the second Shared Services Center in Krakow, BNP Paribas announced. As part of it, it will develop its IT Hub called B-INFINIT and the International Operations Center (IOC). The office in Krakow will employ over 200 people

“We decided to open a branch of our IT Hub in Krakow because the capital of Małopolska has a very developed market of IT employees. It is famous for its rich educational offer and the quality of the academic center educating specialists in the field of technology. It is not without reason that many international corporations, financial institutions and banks decide to locate increasingly specialized processes here. The opening of B-INFINIT in Krakow and the expansion of operations departments are part of the BNP Paribas Group GTS 2025 strategy (Development, Technology, Sustainable Finance), which assumes strengthening operational activities and efficiency,” said CIB Chief Operating Officer Dimitri Thomas, quoted in the release.

The task of the IT Hub B-INFINIT (the acronym comes from the words BNP Paribas–INternational, FINance, IT) is to support BNP Paribas CIB in areas such as: Securities Services (service of securities operations), Global Banking (corporate banking) and IT Production ( maintenance and development of IT infrastructure).

In turn, the International Operations Center (IOC), which provides global services for investment funds, will develop its operational activities already conducted in Warsaw through expansion in Krakow, it was also indicated.

“In Krakow, we plan to employ over 100 specialists in the operational team within IOC by the end of 2025. Who are we looking for? Specialists in the field of investment fund accounting, activities conducted within the Transfer Agent and related AML and KYC activities, as well as the dynamically growing Private Capital area,” said Piotr Tatar, head of IOC Operations Poland.

“In Krakow, where recruitment has just started, we have already acquired 10 new employees, and ultimately we plan to employ over 100 specialists,” added B-INFINIT chief information officer Aneta Kolankowska.
