Natixis launches Taipei branch to deepen its presence in Taiwan
New branch reflects Natixis’ long-term commitment to Taiwan, and its ambitions to further expand its offering and client base in the market
Natixis, the international corporate, investment, insurance and financial services arm of Groupe BPCE, the second largest banking group in France, is pleased to announce the opening of a banking branch in Taipei.
Natixis has been present in Taiwan since 2008, initially through a representative office, and now through Natixis Taipei Branch, which officially began operations today having received final approval from Taiwan’s Financial Supervisory Commission in December 2016.
François Riahi, Global Co-Head of Corporate & Investment Banking, said that the opening of the branch is part of a wider expansion by Natixis in Asia Pacific under its current medium-term plan that runs from 2014 to the end of 2017.
“Asia Pacific is central to Natixis’ strategy of internationalization, with Taiwan one of our key markets. The opening of our new branch is a reflection both of the progress we have made in developing our business in Taiwan over the past four years, and of our long-term ambitions to further build our presence here.”
Alain Gallois, Chief Executive Officer, Corporate & Investment Banking, Asia Pacific, added: “We are entirely client-centric in our approach. Our Taipei branch will enable us to be even closer to our Taiwanese clients, giving us a deeper understanding of their precise needs and allowing us to offer them tailor-made solutions that draw on Natixis’ full suite of global expertise.”
