We're Committed to Equality
As our industry rapidly evolves, our diverse and talented employees are critical to driving innovation.
At Natixis Investment Managers, we are actively committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce. As a global asset manager with more than 20 independent investment affiliates, diverse thinking is at the heart of everything we do.
We continuously work to create an environment that promotes diversity and inclusion in all its forms, across gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity and background. We believe this creates equal opportunities for our employees — and better outcomes for our clients and communities.
Diversity is a business imperative at Natixis. Our multi-affiliate business model is built on our belief that leveraging many different ideas and perspectives leads to better results for our clients. Attracting and developing diverse talent is crucial to our long-term success, so our commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in our offices and communities is an important part of our focus on sustainability.
~ Jean Raby
A diverse and inclusive workforce challenges conventional thinking and creates a more dynamic and rewarding working environment. This enables employees to learn from each other and challenge their own beliefs. The ultimate aim of good diversity & inclusion mirrors other governance initiatives: To improve outcomes for clients.
