BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Natixis Global Asset Management today welcomed employees to its new US headquarters at 888 Boylston Street in Boston. Natixis’ new offices in the LEED Platinum-certified building are designed to accommodate the rapid growth of the firm, which has added nearly 500 Boston-based staff and $80 billion of assets under management over the past decade. Nearly 450 of the firm’s 1,500 Boston-area staff will operate from the high-tech offices, including executives from Natixis’ global investment management affiliates Mirova, Seeyond and Gateway.
“Our stunning new Boston headquarters are symbolic of Natixis’ strong global momentum and our position as one of the world’s leading active investment managers,” said David Giunta, CEO of Natixis Global Asset Management for the US and Canada. “The incredible talent of our Boston-based team has been instrumental to our global growth, so we are proud to continue building on our strong foundation in this community.”
“Natixis has built one of the world’s leading asset management firms here in Boston, which illustrates our city’s strong position as a global financial capital and a hub for innovative new businesses,” said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “We also appreciate that Natixis has been a leader in our community, giving back both financially and through the dedicated volunteerism of its staff, including innovative programs like their partnership with the Winthrop School in Dorchester.”
With more than 3,650 employees worldwide and $951 billion of assets under management, Natixis Global Asset Management has grown by nearly 900 employees globally over the past decade. The firm’s local footprint has also grown during that time, expanding by nearly 500 to 1,500 employees in the Boston area today, including several investment management affiliates such as Loomis Sayles and Company and AEW Capital Management in Boston, AlphaSimplex Group in Cambridge, Mass., and Natixis Asset Management, U.S., LLC, which includes investment managers Mirova and Seeyond.
Natixis will occupy six floors of the 17-story, 425,000-square-foot structure at 888 Boylston, which was designed to be Boston’s most sustainable office building. The building uses 45 percent less energy and 37 percent less potable water than an average office building. Tenants can leave the lights off 60 percent of the time, as the building features daylight penetration to 95 percent of the floor area. Additional sustainable features include on-site rooftop solar and wind power generation that will power all exterior building and plaza lighting and a rain harvesting and reuse system. The building was recently awarded LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council.
“Natixis is a leader in sustainable investing, so it was important for our new offices to reflect those values and the increasing importance of environmental, social and governance factors in investing,” said Giunta. “Our new space is also designed to reinforce our culture of innovation, collaboration and transparency and to enable us to serve our clients’ needs well into the future.”
Natixis’ office space at 888 Boylston was designed by CBT, a leading design firm working locally, nationally and internationally in architecture, interior design and urban design creating tomorrow’s landmarks. The developer for 888 Boylston Street was Boston Properties, one of the largest owners, managers and developers of Class A office properties in the United States; the interior fit-out was done by Turner SPD, a division of a North America-based, international construction services company that is a leading builder in diverse market segments; and project management services were provided by STV/DPM, a national construction management firm.
