Seeyond, a European-based active manager, began as an investment unit within Natixis ten years ago. Currently, the $10 Billion Natixis sub-advisor has plans to expand it’s U.S. presence. MVIN, their international minimum volatility ETF, offers investors a continuation of what “Seeyond has been doing in the institutional space and European markets for a long time,” says Piré. The actively managed ETF is designed to yield long-term capital appreciation, diversify through international exposure, and significantly lower volatility. Risk adverse investors, close to retirement, are incorporating the ETF as apart of their core, while “longer-time horizon investors,” are utilizing the ETF as a way to reduce overall risk in their portfolio, explains Piré.
