Fund Manager

Founded in 1977, Gateway Investment Advisers, LLC is owned by Natixis Global Asset Management and has one of the industry’s longest running option hedging programs. Noted for its accomplishment in hedging client portfolios during the market crash in October 1987, the firm extended its hedging strategy to its flagship mutual fund in January 1988. Gateway’s investment strategy seeks to capture the majority of the returns associated with equity market investments while exposing investors to less risk than other equity investments.
