  • Natixis Evolves Natixis Sustainable Future Funds
  • Incorporates new ESG index segments
BOSTON, Oct. 3, 2018 – Natixis Investment Managers today announced the appointment of three portfolio managers to the Natixis Sustainable Future Funds, who will be primarily responsible for the oversight of the Funds’ sub-advisers. The named portfolio managers include Marina Gross, EVP of Natixis’ Portfolio Research and Consulting Group (PRCG), Curt Overway, President of Managed Portfolio Advisors (MPA), and Daniel Price, CIO of MPA.

Additionally, Natixis has added three new equity segments to the Funds to further diversify the product range while staying true to the Funds’ sustainable investment focus. These additions, which include a small/mid-cap segment, an international developed markets segment and an emerging markets segment, will each follow a sustainable investment approach.

“We’re excited to add these additional equity strategies that we think will help achieve our long-term mission of providing 401(k) plan participants the option to invest in strategies that reflect their personal values,” said Ed Farrington, EVP, Head of Retirement Strategies at Natixis. “We’re very pleased with the Funds’ performance to date, however, we expect to continue evolving our offering in order to meet the asset allocation needs of the Funds, and to provide an ESG option that continues to deliver strong performance for our investors.”1

The Funds are advised by Natixis Advisors, L.P. with Wilshire Associates Incorporated acting as a sub-adviser, as well as responsible for providing glide path design and portfolio allocation services. The Funds’ assets will be invested within affiliated underlying funds and separately managed account segments that the portfolio managers and Wilshire deem appropriate based on the Funds’ overall objectives.

These enhancements will be effective on October 15, 2018 and Natixis expects that the Funds will continue to evolve in response to changing market conditions and in the best interest of investors.
