About Equity Derivatives

Our Financial Engineering and Sales work as an unified team to develop innovative solutions through the below 8 pillars.

Indices

Natixis is now recognised as a key provider of Passive Investment Strategies. Over the years, Natixis has been developing a new generation of indices combining the same degree of transparency as traditional equity indices.

Alternative Risk Transfer (ART)

The ART initiative is our capability to identify and transform hard-to-shift risk into profitable trades for institutional clients (Pension Funds, Insurance Companies, Asset Managers).

Global Securities Financing (GSF)

GSF employs delta-one strategies to facilitate equity exposure, hedging, strategic acquisitions, collateralised financing or bespoke portfolio solutions. It enables clients to optimise their equity portfolios, providing liquidity and the opportunity to extract incremental yield on assets and/or cash.

Equity Payoffs

We develop innovative structured solutions focusing on boosting returns and protecting capital to meet investors’ specific risk and return profiles. We are one of the leaders in providing overlay hedging strategies to Pension Funds and Insurance Companies based on their regulatory constraints.

Fund Solutions

Fund Solutions offers a full range of fund-linked products to clients globally. The team’s mandate includes Capital Protected and Leveraged Products, Pass Through and Regulatory Solutions, as well as Financing Solutions.

Hybrids

By combining asset classes, it allows our clients to simultaneously diversify risk and also purchase their hedges at a lower cost as we actively risk manage exposures across asset classes.

Wrapper & Regulatory Solutions

By understanding the regulatory constraints of our clients, we provide efficient wrapping solutions:

  • Actively Managed Certificate (AMC)
  • Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)
  • EMTN
  • Warrants

Marketing

Group Internal Guarantee & Solidarity System

What is the guarantee and solidarity mechanism

• Pursuant to Article L.511-31 of the French Monetary and Financial Code (Code monétaire et financier), BPCE shall, as the central institution, take any measures necessary to guarantee the Financial Code (Code monétaire et financier), BPCE shall, as the liquidity and solvency of Groupe BPCE.

• Natixis, in its capacity as an institution affiliated with BPCE, is covered by the Groupe BPCE financial solidarity mechanism.

How does it work ?

In the event Natixis encounters financial difficulty,

• BPCE would firstly provide support using its own regulatory capital in accordance with its duty as a shareholder;

• should this prove insufficient, it would use the mutual guarantee fund created by BPCE, which at December 31, 2016 totaled €362.6 million in assets provided jointly by the Banques Populaires and Caisses d’Epargne networks, and which is increased through an annual contribution (subject to the amounts which would be used in the event of a call for funds);

• if BPCE’s regulatory capital and this mutual guarantee fund should prove insufficient, BPCE would call on (in equal proportions) both the Banques Populaires and Caisses d’Epargne networks’ own guarantee funds of €900 million in total and;

finally

• if calls on BPCE’s regulatory capital and these three guarantee funds should prove insufficient, additional sums would be requested from all Banques Populaires and Caisses d’Epargne.

It should be noted that the guarantee funds referred to above consist of a Groupe BPCE internal guarantee mechanism activated at the initiative of the BPCE Executive Board or the French banking regulator, which may request that it be used if deemed necessary.

Consequences

• Financial failings of Natixis SA (like all affiliated French Regulated Credit Institutions, the “FRCI”) would be covered by the aggregate capital of the 2 networks.

• This explains that there is only 1 credit risk and 1 senior debt rating for all the FRCI within the group (excluding CFF with S&P). Bondholders are ultimately protected by the aggregate capital of the 2 networks.
