Through its branches in Shanghai and Beijing, Natixis works with many of China’s largest corporations and provides investment opportunities to Chinese institutional investors.
We aim to serve as trusted advisor to our corporate clients, leveraging our global reach and expertise to support their business development at home and abroad. We provide our clients with financing and risk management solutions, enable their access to the international debt markets and support their day-to-day trade finance and liquidity management activities.
Internationally, we accompany our Chinese corporate clients in their overseas expansion, drawing on our global presence and our deep roots in Europe. We facilitate and finance cross-border acquisitions by Chinese companies, particularly into Europe, and support our clients’ investments in commodities and projects worldwide, including in Australia, Africa and Latin America.
For Chinese institutional investors, Natixis provides tailor-made investment opportunities including structured products issued by Natixis, structured assets originated by Natixis and bonds issued by Natixis’ parent company, Groupe BPCE.
"Natixis traces its history in the Chinese market back to Banque Française du Commerce Extérieur (BFCE), which established correspondent banking relationships with Chinese banks in the 1950s. We have had an on-the-ground presence in mainland China since 1994, and today have branches in Shanghai and Beijing.
The continuing development of our Corporate & Investment Banking business in Greater China is a key priority for Natixis, as set out in the bank’s 2014-17 strategic plan, New Frontier.
Our staff combine in-depth local knowledge with a global vision, working closely with Natixis teams worldwide to wholeheartedly serve our clients in China, and bring them all the benefits of Natixis’ global expertise."
