In presenting a Diversity Champion award to Natixis IM, InvestmentNews cited Natixis Investment Managers Solutions’ AIA Racial Equity Investment Portfolios launched in early 2021. The Racial Equity investment approach seeks to identify companies that are leaders in or help to promote diversity, equity and inclusion; and avoid or divest from companies that cause, contribute to, exploit or profit from racial injustice. Natixis IM utilizes research and proprietary data from third-party providers, including JUST Capital and Venn Diagram Partners, to identify companies that are appropriate to include in the portfolios.
Natixis IM’s Global Equal Opportunities Advancement Scholarship program and its partnerships with public charter schools in Boston and San Francisco were additional initiatives considered during the Excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusions Awards judging process. Both programs focus on expanding the pipeline of diverse candidates within the financial services industry by providing underrepresented youth scholarships along with internship and mentoring opportunities at Natixis.
