New York, June 27, 2023 – Candriam and New York Life Investments today announced their expanded partnership to deliver offshore capabilities and solutions reaching global investors whose wealth is managed in the U.S.
With this expanded partnership, investors in the U.S. offshore market will gain access to certain Candriam multi-billion-dollar flagship UCITS funds with deep expertise, long track records, global investor bases and sizeable assets under management.

In some cases, Candriam will be able to offer clones of existing US mutual funds, managed by its affiliates, for the first time to these investors.
New York Life Investments’ sales teams will use their on-the-ground relationships in the U.S. and leverage the company’s scale to support introductory conversations with U.S.-based broker-dealers and financial firms. This approach aims to unlock new opportunities, enabling these groups and their end clients to benefit from Candriam’s proven investment strategies.
Jac McLean, Head of U.S. Distribution at New York Investment Management¹, said: “With Candriam’s investment excellence and track record in Europe and across the globe, combined with our relationships with major platforms in the U.S., we are well positioned to leverage our scale, resources, and distribution channels to meet the evolving needs of US offshore clients. Our daily conversations with U.S. advisors enable us to see first-hand how tricky market dynamics are driving their offshore clients to seek new investment ideas; these insights, in turn, empower our sales teams to work closely with intermediaries and platforms to deliver best-in-class solutions to this market segment.”
“Expanding access to Candriam’s renowned global strategies in the U.S. offshore market aligns with our commitment to continue to provide a range of new and creative investment opportunities for intermediaries and end clients.”
Keith Dixson, Head of International Development at Candriam, continued:
“There is a significant opportunity in the U.S. offshore market to match evolving investor demand in these regions with innovative solutions. International investors are seeking high yielding strategies, along with diversifiers for their portfolios which are increasingly centered on global thematic solutions that take advantage of structural trends.”
“We look forward to expanding these solutions for clients and working closely with intermediaries to bring new opportunities to their clients in these markets. This increases our global coverage and is a natural next step to growing the business.”.
