Ryan, who will succeed Jean Raby, started his career in the asset management industry in 1992, working in quantitative research and equity portfolio management in an HSBC subsidiary. In 2000, he joined AXA, where he broadened his experience as head of quantitative asset management before becoming chief investment officer for the insurance business in Japan in 2003 and, subsequently, for Asia.
In 2008, Ryan was appointed CEO in charge of various regions (Japan and EMEA) for AllianceBernstein’s US asset management subsidiary. In 2017, he joined Generali as group chief investment officer for insurance assets and global CEO of asset and wealth management.
Nicolas Namias, CEO of Natixis and chairman of the board of directors of Natixis Investment Managers, says: “As we prepare to launch our new strategic plan for the period to 2024, [Tim Ryan’s] in-depth knowledge of the asset and wealth management businesses, together with his international experience, leadership and business development skills, will be key advantages for Natixis.”
