Natixis Asset Management and Mirova recognized for the quality of their management at the 2016 Corbeilles awards
Natixis Asset Management and Mirova received two distinctions for the quality of their management at the Corbeilles Mieux Vivre Votre Argent 2016 awards: Caisse d'Epargne received a Corbeille d’Or (gold) for its entire range over 1 year and Natixis Interépargne received a Corbeille Épargne salariale (employee savings) for the second consecutive year.
The Corbeilles awarded by Mieux Vivre Votre Argent magazine are one of the most prestigious and most recognized French awards. They are handed out every year to the best institutions among banking networks, management companies or distributors of employee savings products.
Corbeille d’Or for Caisse d’Epargne
The Corbeille received by our distributor Caisse d’Epargne highlights the quality of funds in the new ranges, "Sélection Essentielle" and "Sélection Patrimoniale," and especially the conviction-based thematic equity fund managed by Natixis Asset Management and Mirova:
- AAA Actions Agro Alimentaire, the fund managed by Natixis Asset Management, benefits from the defensive nature of the sector and from its relevant selection of portfolio securities. With a solid track record of over 30 years, the fund today has AuM close to one billion euro1.
- Also in the equities category, Écureuil Bénéfices Environnement managed by Mirova also greatly contributed to winning the award due to the quality of the selection of portfolio companies, especially those involved in natural resource management.
Corbeille Épargne salariale for Natixis Interépargne
The Corbeille Épargne salariale awarded to our partner Natixis Interépargne rewards the management implemented within two complementary ranges:
- The “Avenir” range: an international range based on a very broad investment universe, as well as on the ability of Natixis Asset Management’s allocation managers to make the right choices among Natixis Global Asset Management’s rich blend of expertise worldwide;
- The “Impact ISR” range: a range that benefits from both Natixis Asset Management’s allocation managers and the SRI conviction-based management by Mirova as far as European equities and aggregate interest rates are concerned.
These two prizes reward the very good performance of the ranges (over 1 year for Caisse d’Epargne banks and over 5 years for employee savings products) and illustrate the ability of Natixis Asset Management’s and Mirova’s investment managers to create value in a market context that is often complex for these periods.
