Laurent Mignon, Chief Executive Officer of Natixis said: “The second-quarter 2011 results reflect the strength of Natixis’ customer-centric business model in an environment characterized by great uncertainty. These good performances were driven by the improved market positions of the core businesses, the continued reduction in the risk profile and an increase in the contribution of the BPCE retail banking networks. Natixis’ financial structure continues to strengthen in anticipation of regulatory change, thanks largely to strict control of risk-weighted assets. In two years, Natixis has significantly reined in its risk profile and demonstrated its ability to generate quality recurring results.”
