Hancock Plans to Continue its Fund Adoption Spree

Reported by Armie Margaret Lee

Since embarking on its mutual fund adoption strategy in 2002, John Hancock Funds has done nine adoptions -- the latest one was completed earlier this month -- and the Boston-based investment manager continues to be on the lookout for prospective fund adoptees.

Hancock's Adoption History
  • 2002 -- US Global Leaders Growth Fund from Yeager, Wood & Marshall, Classic Value from Pzena Investment Management

  • 2003 -- Large Cap Select Fund from Shay Asset Management

  • 2004 -- Small Cap Fund from Independence Investment LLC

  • 2005 -- Technology Leaders Fund from Light Index Investment Co., Growth Opportunities and International Core Funds from GMO

  • 2008 -- Rainier Growth Fund from Rainier Investment Management, Disciplined Value Fund from Robeco Asset Management

  • "We might do one more adoption in 2009," said Andrew Arnott, senior vice president and head of product management and development, in an interview with The MFWire.

    Hancock is looking at the large cap core, domestic equity income and small cap areas, Arnott said.

    On January 12, Hancock finished the adoption of the Robeco Boston Partners Large Cap Value Fund and launched it as the John Hancock Disciplined Value Fund (see The MFWire, 01/12/09).

    "As a result of our adoption strategy and the capabilities of our internal affiliate MFC Global, JHF has never been better positioned as we are today," Arnott said, noting that Hancock has more than 15 four or five star rated funds and "can now offer core and alpha enhancing strategies in all major categories."
