RATIONAL MANAGERS

TO PILOT YOUR INVESTMENTS

OUR JOURNEY

In 2012, to accelerate growth of this type of expertise within natixis Investment Managers and promote synergy between specialists, teams of specialists were grouped together under a common management team and brand: Seeyond.

In 2018, given the strength of its development as a management division, Seeyond became an independent company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Natixis IM group.

OUR COMMITMENTS

PERMANENT CONTROL AND RISK MONITORING

programme de controle

CONTROL LEVELS

Permanent Control
Permanent Control is responsible for ensuring compliance with all of the company's processes, procedures, products and services. In addition to topics related to personal and professional ethics, and the validation of the control plan, this department carries out specific advice and trainings for Seeyond’s employees.

Permanent control is guided by legislative, regulatory, professional requirements as well as by policies defined by top Management.

Risk Monitoring 
The Chief Risk Officer is responsible for validating and monitoring the risks inherent to the core business of portfolio management. The Chief Risk Officer is independent from the investment teams and directly reports to Seeyond’s CEO. Although independent, on-going interaction between Seeyond’s CRO and investment teams is a hallmark of Seeyond’s approach. Consistent collaboration ensures immersion as well as full understanding and adapted monitoring of the processes, while instilling a strong risk culture to management teams.
