Center for Investor Insight

The Natixis Center for Investor Insight is a global research initiative focused on the issues and sentiment driving today’s investment landscape. Since 2010, we’ve surveyed more than 100,000 people in 30+ countries to provide a global perspective.

Our research covers a wide spectrum of investors, from individuals to financial advisors to institutions. We offer deep dives into key topics, including return expectations and risk perceptions, active vs. passive investing, and global retirement security. Our goal is to go beyond the numbers and offer insight that helps fuel more meaningful client conversations.

Our focus reports include:

  • Model portfolios
  • Generation X
  • Millennials
  • Retirement plan participants
  • High-net-worth investors
  • Natixis strategist outlook
  • Global Retirement Index
  • Fixed income pulse survey
