Active ETFs

Pinpointing opportunity, managing risk

Investors are faced with various unknowns in all market environments – from interest rate fluctuations, inflation, and geopolitical conflicts to market volatility. While we can’t be immune to all these challenges, arming oneself with a flexible, actively managed investment solution that can adapt to changing opportunities and risks can be a sensible starting point.

An active investment approach empowers managers to pursue growth opportunities, provide diversification, manage risk, and potentially outperform market indices. We continue to evolve our offering and provide competitive choices in the ETF space with our investment managers: Gateway Investment Advisers, Loomis, Sayles & Company, and Vaughan Nelson Investment Management.

Natixis Loomis Sayles Focused Growth ETF - This ETF is different from traditional ETFs – traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day; this ETF will not. This may create additional risks. For example, since this ETF provides less information to traders, they may charge you more money to trade this ETF’s shares. Also, the price you pay to buy or sell ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. These risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain markets. See the ETF prospectus for more information.

Why active ETFs?

We already know that ETF investing can provide superior liquidity, lower costs, and greater tax efficiency relative to some other investment vehicles. Active ETFs can offer the added potential for enhanced risk-adjusted returns based on a skilled portfolio manager’s decision-making and investment process.

While active managers are, of course, challenged when navigating elevated market volatility, their investment insights are supported by proprietary research resources and a team of research analysts to opportunistically select investments with the most compelling risk/reward profiles. In fact, for portfolio managers whose strategies follow a long-term time horizon, short-term market volatility can also be viewed as an opportunity to buy stocks or bonds of quality companies at discounted prices.

At Natixis, our active ETF approach combines renowned investment research and active investment managers with the benefits of an ETF solution: Cost conscious, tax-efficient, intra-day trading, and active fund manager insights.

Before investing, carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risk, charges, and expenses. Visit for a prospectus or a summary prospectus containing this and other information. Read it carefully before investing.

RISKS: ETF General Risk: Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, and will fluctuate in market value. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are not individually redeemable directly with the Fund, and are bought and sold on the secondary market at market price, which may be higher or lower than the ETF's net asset value (NAV). Transactions in shares of ETFs will result in brokerage commissions, which will reduce returns. Active ETF Risk: Unlike typical exchange-traded funds, there are no indexes that the Fund attempts to track or replicate. Thus, the ability of the Fund to achieve its objectives will depend on the effectiveness of the portfolio manager. There is no assurance that the investment process will consistently lead to successful investing. Equity Securities Risk: Equity securities are volatile and can decline significantly in response to broad market and economic conditions. Foreign Securities Risk: Foreign securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations. Additionally, they may be subject to greater political, economic, environmental, credit, and information risks. Foreign securities may be subject to higher volatility than US securities, due to varying degrees of regulation and limited liquidity. Currency Risk: Currency exchange rates between the US dollar and foreign currencies may cause the value of the fund's investments to decline. Small and Mid-Cap Stocks Risk: Investments in small and midsize companies can be more volatile than those of larger companies.
