02.1. Select the location of your organisation’s headquarters.

France

02.2. Indicate the number of countries in which you have offices (including your headquarters).

Natixis AM employs 678 people, as of 31st December 2016, within its direct scope and within its majority-owned subsidiaries Dorval, H20, Natixis AM US, Natixis AM Asia and Natixis AM Finance.

Mirova, the RI subsidiary wholly-owned by Natixis AM, is a PRI signatory and reports separately on its own scope. In accordance with PRI’s reporting guidelines, Mirova’s staff (69 FTE) is therefore not included in the number of employees mentioned above. However, it is worth highlighting that, from an operational perspective, Mirova’s employees are considered as in-house teams, as they contribute to Natixis AM responsible asset management strategy, notably by providing its PMs with ESG inputs.

 


OO 03. Subsidiaries that are separate PRI signatories

03.1. Indicate whether you have subsidiaries within your organisation that are also PRI signatories in their own right.

03.3. Additional information. [Optional]

As a pioneer and leader in SRI with almost 30 years of experience in this field, Natixis Asset Management is deeply involved in the implementation of ESG investment strategies. Recognizing the increasingly important role of responsible investing, Natixis AM decided:

to develop a CSR policy and mainstream ESG incorporation strategies within its own scope;
to regroup its Core-RI capabilities within a single division, Mirova, which was launched in November 2012.

 In order to accelerate the development of its responsible investment activities, Natixis AM announced the incorporation of Mirova as a separate management company and wholly owned subsidiary of Natixis AM on January 1st, 2014.

 Mirova offers a full array of investment solutions: listed equities, bonds, infrastructure funds, impact investing as well as engagement and voting services.

Mirova is a PRI signatory since 2013, and therefore reports seperatly on its own scope. However, from an operational perspective, Mirova’s employees are considered as in-house teams, as they contribute to Natixis AM responsible asset management strategy, notably by providing its PMs with ESG inputs. (the investment scopes are nevertheless clearly separated, with distinct RI approaches, fully explained in the SG, LEI, LEA and FI sections of both companies’ PRI reports).
