Company Description

Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Customers across the manufacturing, architecture, building, construction, and media and entertainment industries—including the last 17 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects—use Autodesk software to design, visualize, and simulate their ideas before they're ever built or created. From blockbuster visual effects and buildings that create their own energy to electric cars and the batteries that power them, the work of our 3D software customers is everywhere you look. Through our apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Android, we're also making design technology accessible to professional designers as well as amateur designers, homeowners, students, and casual creators. Whether it's a kid looking to build a new contraption, a seasoned pro sketching out a great new idea, or someone who just wants to amp up their creative output, we're taking technology originally built for movie studios, automakers, and architectural firms, and making it available to anyone who wants to create and share their ideas with the world. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of state-of-the-art 3D software for global markets

In 1951, marking the 25th anniversary of the founding of Loomis, Sayles & Company, Robert H. Loomis sent a clear message to all clients. Click here to read. More than 60 years later, I echo the words of our founder when he said, "we wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to those who, through these difficult years, have helped us to the success we have enjoyed. We look to the future with humility but with confidence." The biggest difference in today's world is that our pace is faster and our playing field is larger. Given this scenario, our job at Loomis Sayles is to keep a laser-like “eye on the ball” particularly during times of uncertainty and volatility, where both risk and opportunity reside. My goal is to ensure that Loomis Sayles remains a broad-based, house of excellence trusted by our clients and recognized for our record of: Attracting and retaining exceptional investment professionals Providing caring, highly ethical and informative services to our clients Producing strong investment performance across our full stable of products The last five years have been a time of tremendous innovation for us. We have grabbed hold of opportunities presented by market upheaval to unearth some tremendous investments, build off our base and empower people to construct and test new capabilities. By integrating these with existing capabilities, (quantitative research, deeper risk analysis, greater macro-economic firepower, absolute return-oriented strategies and securitized capabilities), I believe we are a better investment firm than ever. On behalf of all Loomis Sayles employees, thank you for placing your confidence in us. From my personal vantage point, I am more confident than ever about the future of our company and the skills and passion of our people to deliver excellence in their work. We look forward to serving your investment needs as we face the ever-changing future together.
