Other Programs

Internship Program

At Natixis, we create internships that introduce students at the elementary, high school, and college levels to career opportunities in the finance industry. We’re committed to developing a pipeline of talent for our industry for the long term.

Academy of the Pacific Rim and Life Learning Academy

Partnerships with the Academy of the Pacific Rim (APR) in Boston and the Life Learning Academy (LLA) in San Francisco are an expansion of our longstanding commitment to the communities where we operate.

In addition to the firm’s financial contributions, Natixis associates organize skills-based volunteering opportunities to teach APR students financial literacy. They also work to develop “career exploration” videos designed to introduce LLA pupils to different roles within financial services.

We believe that exposing underrepresented students, with a focus on racial and ethnic minorities, to the numerous career trajectories available within financial services can help expand diversity in future candidate pools.

Graduate Challenge

In the Natixis Investment Managers Graduate Challenge, 12 teams of students, selected from over 45 submissions, compete to manage simulated investment portfolios over the course of three months.

As part of the program, the teams are mentored by our asset management experts from Natixis Investment Managers Solutions, Harris Associates, Loomis Sayles, Dorval AM, DNCA Finance, Mirova, Ossiam, Ostrum AM, Seeyond AM, Thematics AM and Vega IM.

The teams are evaluated on how effectively they managed their virtual portfolios according to ESG principles and strict investment guidelines, as well as their capacity to articulate and present their investment approach and decisions.
