Brett Olsen of Natixis Investment Managers and fixed income portfolio manager Christopher Harms of Loomis, Sayles & Company discuss the Natixis Loomis Sayles Short Duration Income ETF, ticker LSST.


Interest rate uncertainty and potential loss of principal can make the search for yield a risky proposition in today’s fixed income markets. The Natixis Loomis Sayles Short Duration Income ETF, ticker symbol LSST, is a low-cost portfolio building block designed to provide exposure to short duration fixed income securities. Built on credit research from Loomis, Sayles & Company, it strives to offer more income potential than traditional money market funds and ultra-short duration securities.

Fund and Management

LSST is an actively managed ETF designed to pursue higher yield potential in short duration fixed income securities. It’s built using Loomis Sayles’ renowned global research platform, giving it a high-conviction, active approach to research and security selection. This approach allows LSST to go where it identifies the best relative value, while trying to minimize risk and volatility in uncertain markets.

Why Choose This ETF

Higher yield potential than with money markets and ultra-short duration securities

Short duration fixed income securities may provide better income potential than money market and ultra-short duration funds. Also, we believe they are less affected by rising interest rates than longer duration fixed income securities.

Active approach to short duration fixed income investing

LSST is supported by Loomis Sayles’ global research platform, which combines top-down macroeconomic analysis with bottom-up security selection. This high-conviction approach gives LSST’s investment team the flexibility to choose securities they identify as having the best relative value. In addition, LSST’s active approach incorporates risk monitoring not often found in traditional index ETFs, which can help mitigate downside potential, especially in a rising rate environment.

Lower price point and full transparency

Through the ETF structure, LSST may provide exposure to short duration fixed income securities at a lower price point than traditional mutual funds may offer. In addition to structural cost savings, investors also have full transparency into the securities they own.
