New York Life's MainStay Funds
on Monday unveiled a host of changes in its stock and bond funds, including sub-advisor, expense ratio and name changes.
It ended sub-advisory relationships with fellow New York Life unit MacKay Shields for some funds. These include the All Cap Growth and Small Cap Growth funds, for which it has tapped Epoch Investment Partners
as interim sub-advisor.
For the Mid Cap Growth and Mid Cap Value, New York Life appointed Tony Elavia, CEO of New York Life unit Madison Square Investors
as portfolio manager. Madison Square Investors will also serve as interim sub-advisor for the Capital Appreciation Fund. Another New York Life subsidiary, Institutional Capital LLC
, has become interim sub-advisor for the MainStay Value Fund.
A representative for MainStay told The MFWire
that the "enhancements are indicative of our enduring commitment to shareholders and reflect our multi-boutique model. There is inherent value in the ability to offer acumen and expertise across asset classes and investment styles. We share a lot of investment philosophy [with Epoch], they are a well regarded institutional boutique that add a complementary dimension to robust offering."
