McDonnell's early roots date back to 1987, when the business was first established as the separate account management division of the former Van Kampen Investments. The business evolved and expanded throughout the 1990s, as numerous institutional and private client advisory relationships were formed. Performance track records were established by the group for various investment grade fixed income products.

 

As the separately managed accounts (SMA) business gained momentum with brokerage firms and third party advisor groups throughout the 1990s, the firm (then known as Van Kampen Management Inc.) secured participation with several key sponsors through the offering of both tax-exempt and taxable bond strategies. Growth in the institutional channel continued steadily across diverse client types. In addition, the organization inaugurated its presence in the sub-advisory channel in the late 1990s by partnering with prominent investment companies to sub-advise fixed income funds.

In May of 2001, McDonnell Investment Management, LLC was organized by the original founders of the business unit at Van Kampen to acquire substantially all of the assets of the business, an acquisition that occurred on October 31, 2001. McDonnell opened its doors as an independently owned registered investment adviser on November 1, 2001 with more than $6 billion in assets under management.

The McDonnell organization has continued to thrive over the past sixteen years, with its asset management business doubling since it was established as an independent investment adviser. Steady growth has endured across all distribution channels.

The insurance asset management business has grown extensively since the mid-2000s and represents a significant portion of our business, with assets under management totaling approximately $3.4 billion as of September 30, 2017. We continue to seek new investment advisory relationships with life & health, property & casualty, reinsurance and other types of insurance entities that may require more customized investment management mandates. McDonnell recognizes the unique business and investment needs of insurance companies and employs a comprehensive approach to managing insurance client portfolios, incorporating a detailed business review and sensitivity to actuarial and regulatory objectives. Specialized compliance and reporting systems that are geared toward insurance companies are in place and enhanced regularly.

The organization maintains a deep exposure in the SMA market by continually seeking to expand the taxable and municipal bond product offerings on major wirehouse platforms in addition to key third party sponsored platforms (both traditional SMA and unified managed accounts (UMA) programs).

On December 31, 2012, McDonnell was acquired by Natixis Investment Managers (Natixis), a large asset manager based in Paris and Boston. As a subsidiary of Natixis, McDonnell operates autonomously under Natixis' multi-affiliate model continuing to enhance the level of service and fixed income products which it can deliver to its clients. In connection with this partnership, McDonnell's experienced municipal bond team currently manages an intermediate municipal bond fund for which Natixis serves as advisor.

 

After over sixteen years operating as McDonnell, the firm is well rooted in the asset management business and has maintained longstanding advisory relationships through challenging economic times. A strong client base has been cultivated in a controlled fashion across all business channels with the implementation of client tailored investment strategies. McDonnell's forward looking goal is to seek continued expansion in all segments of its investment management business through broader distribution. Firm leaders recognize that the investment needs of our clients continually shift as a result of fluctuating market conditions. To ensure their satisfaction with the appropriate investment solution, we remain committed to a high level of client responsiveness and prudent decision making.
