Editorial Staff 18 January 2023


The appointees cover a variety of regions and both men report to the wealth and asset management chief.

Natixis Investment Managers has named Fabrice Chermouny as head of international distribution, covering the Europe, Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin American markets. Before this, he was the APAC head at the firm. In his new role, he takes over from Joseph Pinto, who has moved to M&G as its asset management CEO.

In total, Chermouny has more than 20 years of experience in asset management.

The firm said that Christophe Lanne has been made chief administration officer for asset and wealth management. He will oversee post-sales support activities for international distribution, as well as Natixis IM Solutions activities, in addition to his existing responsibilities for global operations and technology, human resources and corporate social responsibility strategy.

Chemouny and Lanne will report to Tim Ryan, head of asset and wealth management within Groupe BPCE’s Global Financial Services.  

The business has more than $1.1 trillion assets under management and is part of the Global Financial Services division of Groupe BPC.

Joining Natixis in 2000, Chermouny was previously at CDC IXIS Group. Lanne began his career in 1990 with Banque Indosuez (now Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank) in the General Inspection department.
