Natixis Global Asset Management expands Canadian business
Natixis Global Asset Management has launched a new business development initiative in Canada, which will focus on tapping the steadily growing Canadian institutional market.
Natixis is looking to forge and strengthen relationships with institutional and sub-advisory clients throughout the region.
“We are confident that our proven ability to help manage risk through our Durable Portfolio Construction approach will resonate with pension funds, endowments and foundations seeking ways to protect their clients from volatility,” says John Hailer, chief executive officer of Natixis Global Asset Management in the Americas and Asia. “The current Canadian institutional market, estimated to be USD1.5 trillion and growing, is a diverse market that pairs well with the investment solutions available through our worldwide network of affiliated investment managers.”
The firm’s business development effort will initially focus on the institutional markets in Ontario and Quebec. Montreal-based Roxane St-Martin, senior vice president, institutional services, and Boston-based Ian Macduff, senior vice president, institutional services, will co-manage the Natixis Canadian distribution efforts.
St-Martin brings more than 16 years in asset management experience to the position, and has served with Natixis in the US, Paris and her native Canada. She joined Natixis Asset Management in Paris in 2009, becoming head of wholesale in 2010.
