/// After delivering performance in 2012…


The year 2012 closed favourably for equity markets despite periodic dips due to the return of risk in the euro zone between May and June and the general elections in Greece”, explains Jens Peers, CIO Sustainable equities of Mirova, responsible investment division of Natixis Asset Management.
“Within this context, Mirova equity funds outperformed their benchmarks or displayed an attractive performance for those without a benchmark”.

These results arise from the implementation of an active management strategy on sustainable investment themes and/or quality stock picking of values which address sustainable development challenges or which are positively exposed to these issues with the objective of creating long-term value.
