Model Portfolios and Your Practice

Learn how working with our consultants can help you identify risks in your models and build stronger portfolios for your clients.

Natixis Portfolio Clarity is the portfolio consulting service of Natixis Investment Managers. Specialized consultants provide portfolio analysis to investment professionals using sophisticated analytic tools to identify and quantify sources of risk and return. Twice a year the Latin American and US Offshore team amalgamates this portfolio data in Portfolio Barometer reports that highlight investment trends across risk-rated model portfolios.

Our consultants work in partnership with you to provide insight into the sources of risk and return in your models.
