Natixis Portfolio Clarity is the portfolio consulting service of Natixis Investment Managers. Specialized consultants provide objective portfolio analysis to investment professionals who seek a deeper level of insight, using sophisticated analytic tools to identify and quantify sources of risk and return. The Natixis Portfolio Clarity team works with advisors all over the world to help them better analyse and understand their model portfolios. The team then amalgamates that data and shares these top level findings with investors in the form of Portfolio Barometer reports which identify investment trends across risk rated model portfolios.

Comprehensive Portfolio Evaluation
Our premier service is a comprehensive model portfolio evaluation that culminates in a detailed report that you review with your consultant. This free, bespoke analysis focuses primarily on risk exposures, because we believe risk is a more stable variable than return in portfolio construction. The goal is to help advisors better understand the relationship between volatility and performance.
