Oct. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Natixis SA, BPCE SA’s investment banking unit, and three employees were fined a total of 355,000 euros ($487,300) by France’s financial markets regulator for violations at the now-shuttered Natixis Securities brokerage unit.

Natixis was fined 250,000 euros and the employees were each fined 35,000 euros, the Autorite des Marches Financiers said today in a decision posted on its website.

The fine concerns “isolated and old” actions, said Victoria Eideliman, a spokeswoman for Natixis. “We are studying the decision and reserve the right to appeal.”
