“Natixis recorded its best results in over two years in the fourth quarter of 2020, despite a cost of risk that remained elevated, as our business activity rebounded strongly enabling us to achieve positive net income over the full year.These good results demonstrate the agile nature of our business model and the unwavering commitment of our teams to serving our clients.
In Asset & Wealth Management core revenues grew strongly in the fourth quarter while assets under management reached a new high of over 1.1 trillion euros as our diversified model continued to perform. Our Corporate & Investment Banking business notched up its best quarter of the year with M&A revenues that are notably well ahead of our targets, a very tight management of costs and an improving cost of risk. Natixis Assurances, which in 2020 achieved its ambition of becoming a fully-fledged insurer at the service of the Banque Populaire and Caisse d’Epargne banks, grew revenues by 8% year-on-year both in the fourth quarter and over the full year. Our Payments business continued to expand its activities in the fourth quarter despite the lockdown measures in place in France.
Natixis has shown, through these results and its solid financial position, its capacity to create sustainable value for all its stakeholders and has furthermore proposed to restart dividend payments. With these solid foundations, Natixis is in a strong position to continue to support its clients and to launch, by the summer, an ambitious new strategic plan."
