NATIXIS PLAN GROWTH IN ASIA – Asia currently accounts for roughly 13% of Natixis’ revenue in Corporate and Investment Banking, however, the French bank plans to increase revenues over the next few years with greater focus on equity derivatives and fixed-income. The bank, currently employing 620 staff in Asia, plan to increase that number by 10% a year over the next three years. Global CEO, @Laurent Mignon, has said “We are not trying to compete in some of the areas where everybody is. We are trying to pick up a few items where we have some value to bring to our customers and we do well in that.” #SpartanInternational
