Natixis Investment Managers has launched a new business to bring together the firm’s diverse expertise into a single organisation.
Natixis Dynamic Solutions will selectively access expertise across the affiliates to deliver investment solutions that respond to the ever-changing needs of investors.
The new business will be led by the former global head of strategic client solutions Aberdeen Standard Investments James Hughes and will commence operations in December.
Chief executive of Natixis Investment Managers Jean Raby said the new business utilised the strength of the company to its fullest.
“Natixis Dynamic Solutions brings together the existing asset allocation and portfolio construction expertise of our group into a single entity to address complex investment challenges utilising the diverse expertise of our global multi-affiliate organization,” he said.
Mr Raby also expressed his confidence in Mr Hughes to lead the business and create the best outcome for their clients.
“James has the breadth and depth of global experience to lead the rapid development of this business and the expertise to reach across our affiliate investment managers to create investment solutions that are unique within our industry and directly responsive to the needs of our clients,” he said.
The new business venture has been formed through the consolidation of Natixis’ European investment solutions and the former investment and client solutions unit of Ostrum, an affiliate of Natixis.
