Multinational money-management giant Natixis Global Asset Management is bringing the capabilities of three of its U.S. affiliates to the former NexGen family of mutual funds. Natixis acquired NexGen in December and rebranded it in August as NGAM Canada Investment Corp. Launched last week, the new offerings consist of four distinct investment strategies and a combination of tax-managed corporate-class funds and stand-alone mutual-fund trusts.

Founded in 2005 by Jim Hunter, NexGen was best known for its complex fund structures designed to improve after-tax returns for funds held in non-registered accounts. As a Natixis subsidiary, the Toronto-based firm is building on that legacy with the launch of Oakmark Natixis Tax Managed and Oakmark International Natixis Tax Managed, investing in U.S. equities and international equities, respectively.

Like existing funds in the NGAM multi-class structure, the new Oakmark mandates are available as return-of-capital, dividend-tax-credit and compound-growth classes. There are also trust versions designed for registered accounts. The portfolios of the Oakmark funds will be managed by Chicago-based Harris Associates. Oakmark is the retail fund brand of Harris Associates.
