François Riahi, Natixis Chief Executive Officer, said: “The first quarter of 2019 was marked by a number of important developments in the implementation of our New Dimension strategic plan. Our partnership with Covéa is perfectly aligned with the growth ambitions of our bancassurance model for Groupe BPCE, while the addition of a new M&A boutique in Australia is fully consistent with our CIB roadmap to expand in Investment banking with a sectorial approach. In a challenging environment, especially for market activities during the first two months of the year, and despite a high basis for comparison due to our very strong first quarter in 2018, the diversification and the uniqueness of our business model enabled us to further strengthen our capital position while confirming the payment of a €0.78 dividend per share following the disposal of our retail banking activities.”
