The team, led by Nathalie Beauvir and comprising seven ESG and CSR experts, has been tasked with strengthening Ostrum AM's strategic positioning on ESG, optimizing the interdependence of the various associated investment policies (exclusion, engagement, and voting), and developing Ostrum AM's ESG offering with the launch of new thematic ranges.

Positioning Ostrum AM as THE committed partner for our stakeholders’ transitions

The new Sustainable Transitions Department will report directly to the firm’s CEO office, underlining Ostrum AM’s commitment to placing CSR and ESG dimensions at the heart of its transformation and making both issues a top strategic priority. The company continues to support its institutional clients in offering sustainable products and services and supports issuers in addressing climate, biodiversity, and the impact of their activities on their environmental and societal ecosystem. Ostrum AM also aims to strengthen its role as a committed player in the Paris and European financial markets.

Olivier Houix, Chief Executive Officer of Ostrum AM, said: "Asset management is at the forefront of environmental, social, and technological transformations that both institutional clients and issuers face, in their investment strategy and development financing respectively. With her expertise in sustainability, responsible investment, and ESG issues, Nathalie will establish Ostrum AM as ‘THE committed partner for transitions’ for all its stakeholders, while positioning her team as a catalyst for the ESG and CSR strategy among the company's employees.”

Nathalie Beauvir is a graduate of ESCP business school. She began her career at Société Générale CIB in 2000 in Equity Derivatives Sales, before specializing in credit, where she successively held the positions of Analyst, CDO Structurer and Portfolio Manager. After publishing a thesis on 'the real impact of SRI on the sustainable development of companies' as part of an Executive Master at ESSEC business school, she joined Kepler Cheuvreux in 2014, where she developed an ESG credit research offering with a focus on the development of the green bond market. At the end of 2016, she joined LBPAM, where she oversaw the analysis and research relating to sustainable bonds. Following the merger of LBPAM's fixed income and insurance activities within Ostrum AM, she joined the Research and SRI teams as Head of sustainable bond analysis and research and was actively involved in the launch of the Ostrum Climate and Social Impact Bond fund, focusing on the Just Transition.
