Natixis Fund Family’s asset-weighted performance outpaced other active managers tracked during the same period
Natixis Investment Managers has won first place in the Barron's / Lipper Top Fund Families rankings for one-year performance as featured in Barron's March 12, 2018 issue, "Barron's Best Fund Families." This is the third time in five years that Natixis has placed at the top of the Barron's rankings, having placed first for overall performance across its suite of US mutual funds for their performance in 2016 and 2013. The recognition from Barron's was based on an evaluation of the performance for the Natixis Funds, which include AEW Capital Management, AlphaSimplex Group, Gateway Investment Advisers, McDonnell Investment Management, Mirova, Seeyond, and Vaughan Nelson Investment Management, as well as Loomis Sayles Funds, and Oakmark Funds from 2012 to 2017. Natixis also placed second for five-year performance in the 2017 Barron's annual ranking.
"We are very proud to again be recognized for the excellent performance of our investment managers, which underscores the strength of our active management approach," said David Giunta, CEO for the US and Canada at Natixis Investment Managers. "Each of our investment managers has its own unique philosophy and approach to investing, and this recognition shows that although there is no 'one size fits all' investment strategy, a high-conviction, long-term approach can lead to strong performance across all asset classes."
Natixis has been included in the Barron's / Lipper Top Mutual Fund Families rankings for the past five years and was most recently ranked first out of 61 eligible fund families for one-year performance in 2016. Natixis was not eligible for the five-year performance ranking prior to 2017.
