Natixis's VAR returns to earth after sale of autocallables

French dealer Natixis saw its trading risk fall by over a third in the first quarter.

The bank, part of Groupe BPCE, posted an average value-at-risk of €9.6 million ($10.8 million) in Q1 2019, down from €11.9 million the prior quarter, a period in which it racked up €260 million in losses on Korean structured products. Natixis sold about one-third of this book in February.

Average VAR is still elevated compared with the year-ago quarter, when it was just €7.3 million.
