Dorval AM and H2O AM rewarded at the Citywire France Awards 2016


Natixis Asset Management was singled out at the Citywire France Awards 2016 ceremony, as fund managers from two of its subsidiaries won awards. Bruno Crastes from H2O Asset Management was ranked in the World Bonds category, while Louis Bert and Stéphane Furet from Dorval Asset Management won awards in the French Equities category.

The Citywire France Awards 2016 recognize managers whose funds are registered in France and have consistently posted the best risk-adjusted performances over the last three years (until 31 July 2016). Managers are evaluated on both their individual track record and the record of the funds they managed in an investment sector during that time.

Louis Bert and Stéphane Furet were awarded first prize in the French Equities category for Dorval Asset Management. Dorval Asset Management is a Natixis Asset Management company, set up in 1993. The investment management firm is renowned in the flexible strategies and European equities segments, where it targets long-term performances. The company’s fund management team analyzes fundamental trends and adapts its investment processes to calmly steer through stockmarket cycles while safeguarding invested capital. For more than
10 years, CEO Stéphane Furet and Deputy CEO and Chief Investment Officer Louis Bert have applied their stockpicking expertise in French equities in order to select the best manager-company pairings that are capable of making a difference in the long-term. They have done so by favoring "the search for a nice asset, at a good price and above all well-managed...".
