“In 2019, Natixis recorded very sound results with each of our four businesses growing revenues faster than costs. The fourth quarter of 2019 notably represented Natixis' best-ever quarter in terms of revenue and gross operating income generated. This momentum of successive quarter-on-quarter growth is the result of our unwavering implementation of our asset-light strategy and represents a solid base for us to complete our 2018-2020 strategic plan. 2019 was marked by key strategic milestones: the project to create a leader in the management of life insurance assets with LBPAM, the implementation of the Green Weighting Factor as well as projects being carried out to allow Natixis to reach its 2020 ambition of serving all the customers of Banques Populaires and Caisses d'Epargne on both Life and Non-life insurance. Together with a bolstered robustness and solidity, Natixis will pay a higher ordinary dividend per share of €0.31 to its shareholders, reflecting the strength of its business model.”

François Riahi, Natixis Chief Executive Officer
