Natixis Investment Managers UK won the Innovation Provider of the Year award for a Matching Adjustment (MA) solution at the first Insurance Asset Management Awards gala dinner at the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair on the 30th of November 2017. This event celebrates excellence in the UK and European insurance space.

The MA provisions can help insurers to reduce their capital charge under Solvency II. The MA award-winning solution for life insurers by Natixis Investment Manager UK invests into a diverse portfolio real estate with a stable income linked to inflation.

This solution is based upon the AEW UK Real Return Fund, which is managed by AEW, an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers focusing exclusively on real estate investment management services, working closely with a number of insurers to bring an innovative solution to the Life Insurance market.

As the insurance industry progressively adjusts to Solvency II, annuity providers are increasingly seeking to maximise their investment efficiency.

Natixis Investment Managers UK was awarded the Best Innovative Solution prize at the Investment Exchange Awards 2017 in the UK earlier this year.

The innovative solution by Natixis Investment Managers has the potential to substantially improve the base balance sheet position of UK life insurance companies.
