Natixis Global Asset Management, S.A. Key Developments

Natixis Global Asset Management, S.A. Launches SeeyondSM Multi-Asset Allocation Fund

Natixis Global Asset Management, S.A. announced the launch of a core global tactical asset allocation fund that invests in stocks, bonds and volatility as an asset class. The fund offers the potential benefit of greater diversification by integrating equity volatility as an asset class along with traditional asset classes. In the fund, equity volatility can be used to manage risk or to seek returns in different types of environments. This ability can be especially valuable to investors during market downturns. The Fund is managed by Natixis Asset Management U.S., LLC and benefits from the expertise of Seeyond(SM).

Natixis Global Asset Management Launches ASG Tactical U.S. Market Fund

Natixis Global Asset Management announced the launch of the ASG Tactical U.S. Market Fund (USMAX), a new equity mutual fund from AlphaSimplex Group, LLC (ASG). The fund seeks to participate in the upside of the U.S. equity market while seeking to minimize the impact of the market's downside during periods of extreme market stress. It may help investors stay invested in stocks during both favorable and challenging market environments. The ASG Tactical U.S. Market Fund provides exposure to the stock market through a portfolio of equity securities broadly representative of the U.S. stock market. By using stocks and derivatives, the fund's market exposure can be increased or hedged. The level of the fund's stock market exposure is determined using a proprietary risk-of-loss measure developed by ASG. When this measure indicates a favorable risk-return tradeoff, the fund uses derivatives to increase its equity market beta to as high as 1.3 (130% sensitivity to changes in the stock market). If the measure indicates an unfavorable risk-return tradeoff, the fund uses derivatives to reduce its beta to as low as 0. The tactical flexibility of the fund to limit its market exposure at one extreme, and to exceed 100% market equity exposure at the other extreme, implies the fund can respond to both rising and falling markets. The fund is not intended to be a complete portfolio and is generally limited to the U.S. equity market.
