Dorval Asset Management (Dorval AM) an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers (Natixis IM), has hired Philippe Cormon as Head of Sales and Marketing Development to support its growth ambitions.
To support its development, Dorval AM is strengthening its sales organization by internalizing the distribution of its offer to all external clients (asset managers, wholesalers, institutional investors, insurers in France and abroad), which was previously handled by Natixis IM. Philippe Cormon joins Dorval AM to lead Business Development and Marketing, with over 26 years of experience in asset management, life insurance and private banking. He will be responsible for building a team of four development professionals to support clients in their investment strategies to be completed by 2023. The distribution of Dorval AM offering to the Banque Populaire and Caisse d'Epargne networks will remain unchanged and will continue to be handled by the Natixis Investment Managers teams.
Dorval Asset Management aims to accelerate its development and grow its footprint in France and abroad. In line with its philosophy of "Bringing value to your values", Dorval AM promotes a range of products and services almost fully SRI labelised, to better meet the need of clients.
In January, the asset manager also launched Dorval European Climate Initiative, its first climate fund with a sustainable investment objective, to support corporations’ economic transition*. *All information on Dorval Asset Management's offerings is available on the website https://www.dorval-am.com/en_FR
