Under his leadership, Natixis Investment Managers has asserted its position as a world leader in asset management with assets under management of more than 1.1 trillion euros and has built out its commercial offer with new affiliate asset managers and new areas of expertise. I am pleased that Jean will remain at my side over the coming weeks to ensure an efficient transition", commented Nicolas Namias, CEO of Natixis and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Natixis IM.
