Natixis Launches Mirova International Sustainable Equity Fund

Natixis Investment Managers, headquartered in Boston, has launched its Mirova International Sustainable Equity Fund.

The fund, an all-cap international equity fund, is seeking long-term capital appreciation by investing in companies that invest in accordance with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and avoiding companies whose activities or products hinder such goals.

The socially conscious fund, co-managed by Jens Peers, Hua Cheng and Amber Fairbanks, seeks to maintain a relatively concentrated portfolio of approximately 50 non-U.S. stocks.

Mirova and Ostrum Asset Management U.S., which is managing the fund’s portfolio, are affiliated firms of Natixis.
