WINN Cast: Diversity in APAC M&A

Check out the latest episode of WINN Cast, a podcast that brings together experts from across Natixis to discuss topics related to career growth, diversity in the workplace and share insights about different areas of our global business.


In this episode, Raghu Narain, Head of IB, Asia Pacific, and Miranda Zhao, Head of M&A, Asia Pacific, discuss the state of the M&A market in APAC, their personal professional journeys, as well as how Diversity & Inclusion can be beneficial to the business of financial institutions.


"M&A is about creativity, judgement, persistence and resilience. My advice to women making their way in this field is to harness their own advantages, such as keen observation and good listening skills, solid technical skills and the capability to make critical judgement calls, while leading with a strong sense of vision, empathy and purpose – all of which will help you be successful in an M&A career."

"It is now well understood that D&I is a source of competitive advantage for institutions. In my experience, having a diverse team brings a new dimension of thinking, as well as new and different skillsets, which is critical."
