Gestion de Fortune ranking: Two Natixis Asset Management subsidiaries receive awards


Management companies Dorval Asset Management and H20 Asset Management, both subsidiaries of Natixis Asset Management, were rewarded in the 23rd edition of Gestion de Fortune’s ranking.

Like every year, Gestion de Fortune magazine establishes a ranking of the best companies based on a survey of independent financial advisors. This study consolidates data collected in December (over 48,000 statistics) from more than 3,200 advisors all over France. It offers a quantitative vision, based on the entities most commonly cited by the advisors surveyed, as well as a qualitative perspective, the professionals surveyed being asked to comment on several criteria. Over and above the opinion of independent financial advisors, this survey also reflects client satisfaction.
