Founded in 2010, the Natixis Center for Investor Insight is a global research initiative focused on the critical issues shaping today’s investment landscape. The Center conducts global surveys to examine investor sentiment and the behavior, market outlooks, and risk perceptions of institutional investors, financial professionals and individuals around the world. Our goal is to help identify trends, challenges and opportunities – and ultimately fuel more meaningful conversations with clients.

The Center has a robust offering in addition to surveys. For example, we produce the annual Global Retirement Index, which has become the industry standard for evaluating the financial, economic, and public policy drivers of retirement security. We also combine our in-house expertise with the diverse perspectives of our affiliated asset managers and third-party experts and collaborate on thought leadership and highly customized client presentations.
