Our history

Mirova was created to bring together abundant capital and savings with the investment needs of a real, sustainable and value-creation economy. Since its formation, Mirova has benefited from the sustainable asset management expertise developed by Natixis Investment Managers for over 20 years, and has seen considerable growth in its operations and its investor base.

With more than €14 billion in assets under management, Mirova has become a European and international leader in sustainable finance.

The challenges of the future, and as a result, the opportunities for investment, are plentiful. This is where we come in. This is our role.
