Natixis Global Asset Management has announced the kick-off of a new business development initiative in Canada. The expansion will focus on tapping the steadily growing Canadian institutional market by forging and strengthening Natixis relationships with institutional and subadvisory 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,” said John Hailer, chief executive officer of Natixis Global Asset Management in the Americas and Asia. “The current Canadian institutional market, estimated to be $1.5 trillion and growing, is a diverse market that pairs well with the investment solutions available through our worldwide network of affiliated investment managers.”

Natixis manages more than $899 billion in assets through its affiliates and was selected as the top U.S. mutual fund family based on an evaluation of 2013 performance, according to the annual Barron’s/Lipper ranking of U.S. mutual fund families.

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 U.S., Paris and her native Canada. She joined Natixis Asset Management in Paris in 2009, becoming head of wholesale in 2010. She is a CFA® charterholder.

Macduff is a 20-year veteran in the financial services industry, having previously worked in retirement sales at Fidelity Investments. He is a Certified Investment Management Consultant. Both managers hold FINRA Series 7 and 63 licenses.
