Natixis Investment Management has hired a new chief, to start next week.
Tim Ryan will commence as chief executive from 12 April, succeeding Jean Raby, who is departing the group after four years at the helm.
Mr Ryan will also become a member of the Natixis senior management committee in charge of asset and wealth management.
Nicolas Namias, CEO of Natixis and chair of Natixis Investment Managers commented Mr Raby will remain with the company in the coming weeks to overlook the transition.
“As we prepare to launch our new strategic plan for the period to 2024, I am delighted to welcome Tim Ryan to drive forward our robust momentum across our asset & wealth management businesses, develop our multi-affiliate model to serve our clients and enhance our ESG strategy,” Mr Namias said.
“Tim Ryan’s in-depth knowledge of the asset and wealth management businesses, together with his international experience, leadership and business development skills, will be key advantages for Natixis and our group.”
In his most recent role, Mr Ryan was global CEO of asset and wealth management with Generali, as well as having been group chief investment officer for insurance assets.
Previously, he was chair and CEO of AllianceBernstein EMEA, after being chair and CEO for its Japanese business. He had also been chief investment officer for AXA’s Japanese insurance arm.
Mr Ryan began his career in asset management in 1992, working in quantitative research and equity portfolio management in an HSBC subsidiary.
