Natixis’ Corporate & Investment Bank creates its Green & Sustainable Hub

Paris, France, September 27, 2017

Natixis steps up its green and sustainable economy ambitions and creates the Green & Sustainable Hub in its Corporate & Investment Banking division. This operational hub will provide issuer and investor clients worldwide with a broad spectrum of green and sustainable finance expertise.

Headed by Orith Azoulay, the Hub will provide: 

  • Green & sustainable research, at the very center of the set-up. This team will now be managed by Cécile de Coincy;
  • Finance structuring and origination (bonds, loans, securitization) based on an O2D or Originate-to-Distribute approach, thereby facilitating syndication and distribution to a specialized investor base;
  • Investment solution structuring and engineering (equities, fixed income and credit) aimed at designing innovative investment products and solutions;
  • Advisory as we work alongside our issuer and investor clients.

The new team will be managed by Orith Azoulay, previously Head of SRI Research. Orith will report to Mohamed Kallala, Global Head of Investment Banking, and Luc François, Head of Global Markets.


Orith Azoulay started her career in 2000 as an equity analyst at JP Morgan Chase in London. After working for French think tank ORSE (Observatoire de la RSE – Observatory for Corporate Social Responsibility), she joined Groupama Asset Management to create its SRI research department in 2003. Orith joined Natixis in 2008 to lead its SRI research team in the Global Markets Research department.
