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).
