Natixis AM voted one of best asset managers on Paris financial market


The Extel survey among finance professionals (investment managers, listed companies, etc.) singles out the best companies in the sector across brokerage, asset management and financial communications each year. This year, more than 15,000 professionals and almost
4,600 companies voted in the Extel awards, with the results published exclusively in French financial daily les Échos.

Natixis Asset Management has ranked second this year with 14% of votes in the French asset manager category, as a result of its research in particular, which clients applauded for its high value added. This recognition further confirms NAM’s position in the 2015 and 2016 awards.

Natixis Asset Management’s excellent positioning is also reflected in the fresh award for Ronan Poupon, who was again ranked No.1 in the Top 5 French fund managers and analysts, having already gained first place for France in 2015 and 2016. Ronan Poupon has 17 years’ experience in finance, including 15 in asset management at Natixis Asset Management, and manages euro area equity portfolios in the European Equities Large Caps team at NAM for institutional clients (pension funds, provident institutions, financial institutions, etc.), with AuM of more than €1bn. Meanwhile, Bertrand Le Divelec was awarded fourth place in this same ranking. Bertrand has 30 years’ experience in finance, including 21 in fund management at Natixis Asset Management, and manages equity portfolios for France in the European Equities Large Caps team at Natixis Asset Management for the Banques Populaires and Caisse d’Epargne retail networks, with AuM of more than €3bn.

I am proud to contribute to Natixis Asset Management’s excellent rankings. Fundamental analysis is a key component of our fund management process. This award is also the result of the constructive relationship we have with sell-side analysts who work alongside the team on a daily basis to support us as we constantly endeavor to provide our clients with long-term performance” notes Ronan Poupon, European equity portfolio manager at Natixis Asset Management.
