Natixis has been named Best Euro Lead Manager for Covered Bonds in 2018 by Global Capital’s The Cover magazine, devoted to this market segment. This award attests to Natixis’ strong expertise and reflects its ability to provide tailored solutions in the Covered Bond market for issuers and investors.

Natixis was also shortlisted for the “Best Syndicate manager” and “Best Distribution” awards.

This award confirms our professionnalism on the Euro Covered Bond primary market and reflects our ability to manage complex and innovative deals as demonstrated by our role in the first green covered bond issue for a Norwegian issuer and the only covered bond issue with a revisable rate for a Danish bank.

Worldwide distribution capabilities

Natixis has developed world-renowned expertise on the covered bonds markets and has achieved clear access to the full range of international investors on the back of more than 20 years’ experience and as a result of an origination and sales team across the main markets in Europe, the US and Asia.

  • Euro Covered Bonds;
