Natixis Investment Managers has announced the creation of Natixis Dynamic Solutions, a single offering of client investment solutions, and appointed Aberdeen’s former global head, strategic client solutions, James Hughes, to lead the business.
Hughes has held roles at Gottex Fund Management and HSBC Insurance and would join the firm in December this year, reporting directly to chief executive officer, Jean Raby.
“Natixis Dynamic Solutions brings together the existing asset allocation and portfolio construction expertise of our group into a single entity to address complex investment challenges utilising the diverse expertise of our global multi-affiliate organisation,” said Raby.
“James has the breadth and depth of global experience to lead the rapid development of this business and the expertise to reach across our affiliate investment managers to create investment solutions that are unique within our industry and directly responsive to the needs of our clients.”
Claire Martinetto, former project leader of the solutions initiative at Natixis, would serve as deputy head of the group.
