OVERVIEW


Summit Overview Image

Bold discussions. Breakthrough ideas.
As seismic shifts continue to ripple across the world stage, we convened a group of today's top minds — including world leaders, heads of state, and some of the most influential global investors — for the Natixis Investment Managers Summit, an immersive, interactive event in Paris.

The Summit brought together a diverse group of some 500 senior leaders from finance, business, policy, and academia in an engaging forum designed to challenge the status quo and surface new ideas. The nearly 70 world-class speakers included seasoned leaders, unconventional thinkers, and up-and-coming voices — all leading experts in their fields — who shared diverse points of view and fresh perspectives, and took part in spirited debate about the future of business, politics, and society. The event embodied our Active ThinkingSM mindset.

Game-changing perspectives on critical themes
Far from a traditional financial conference, we tackled many of the major geopolitical and transformational issues that will impact the world — and the world of investing — for generations to come.

Palais Brongniart

 

Palais Brongniart

An essential flagship monument on Paris' historic landscape, Palais Brongniart was built by the architect Alexandre Théodore Brongniart at the behest of Napoleon Bonaparte. Inaugurated in 1826, the location served as the lungs of financial activities in the 19th century, aiding the expansion of the railways, the steel industry and major industrial feats, until 1998, the year in which the 'bourse' or stock exchange at the Palais Brongniart was closed. The Palais Brongniart is now one of the city's premier events venues and hosts conferences, general assemblies, seminars, exhibitions, receptions and more.
