Natixis extends its equity market offering intended for the banking networks

Paris, France, July 17, 2012

In order to strengthen its “Best Execution” services intended for clients of its partner banking networks, Natixis has become a member of Equiduct, the pan-European electronic trading platform.

Natixis provides its clients with access to the equity markets and to a full range of expertise and skills: primary market, cash and derivatives.

To expand its offering, Natixis now utilizes the Equiduct platform, which enables private investors who are clients of its partner banking networks to benefit from added value related to the “Best Execution” principle introduced in 2007 via a MIF Directive: clients can make actual gains by having their orders executed at the best price offered on all markets, and get a global and transparent view of European markets.


“Natixis is one of the first French banking establishments to offer the Equiduct service to its partner retail banking networks. These services are provided in a regulated market approved by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and are secure”, explained Jean-Claude Petard, Head of Natixis’ Equity Markets.
