2021 targets to be released on November 5, 2020 and new strategic plan in June 2021

Natixis’ results in the first half of 2020 were impacted by the coronavirus crisis. In an unprecedented context marked by an increased cost of risk, the impact of lockdown measures on economic activity, and extreme market volatility, Natixis maintained positive earnings capacity and a very comfortable capital position. This demonstrates the strength of our business model and, notably in the second quarter of the year, the flexibility of our cost base, in line with the objectives of the New Dimension strategic plan. The impact of certain one-off factors such as the suspension of dividends and the mark to market of assets and liabilities, some of which are expected to reverse over time, has been integrated into our results. However, the crisis is not over, and the cost of risk is likely to remain elevated over the coming quarters. We will draw on the strength of our businesses to accelerate Natixis’ transformation through structural changes. We are launching a project to adjust the setup of our Equity Derivatives business towards our key strategic clients and are implementing significant measures to reduce expenses.
