Groupe BPCE announced a joint effort by all of its entities, including Natixis Investment Managers, to donate nearly €5 million to support the people of Ukraine in the wake of the Russian invasion. The funds will be channeled to those in need through the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement via the French Red Cross. This well-known organization has a long history of successful intervention in conflict zones, as well as neighboring countries which host refugees. With this donation, we hope to help the civilian population suffering from the war by meeting their need for water, basic necessities, medical equipment, first aid and psychological support. As part of a broader solidarity program, we are also coordinating with our employees to help channel their donations to recognized international relief agencies, including the Red Cross.
