BOSTON, Dec. 8, 2022
/PRNewswire/ - John Hancock Investment Management, a company of
Manulife Investment Management, today announced the three-year
anniversary of its flagship model portfolios. The anniversary
builds on the legacy of the multi-asset solutions team at Manulife
Investment Management that manages the model portfolios. Widely
introduced to advisors on multiple platforms in 2019, the firm
offers a flagship suite of multimanager portfolios. In parallel
with this announcement, the firm is also making new asset class
models focused on U.S. equities, international equities, and the
broader fixed-income markets available to investors.
For more than 25 years, Manulife Investment Management has
managed multi-asset portfolios using an open-architecture approach.
This approach is complemented by the robust manager research and
oversight from John Hancock Investment Management's global manager
research team. These attributes together help to strengthen
diversification benefits across its range of portfolios.
"We are excited to have met this three-year milestone as
advisors and their clients look at multiple ways to find potential
diversification and income," said Steven L.
Deroian, co-head of retail product, John Hancock Investment
Management. "We also are pleased to be introducing the new U.S. and
international equity and fixed-income models as we continue to see
an uptick in portfolio implementation and look to meet these
demands for our clients."
"We are also seeing increased demand for both home office and
third-party models as advisors realize the efficiency and
flexibility offered by model portfolios," added Katie Baker, head of model distribution, John
Hancock Investment Management. "We believe our core value
proposition is the access to a tenured, experienced asset
allocation team and its capability to go beyond affiliated
investment managers. This gives the team flexibility to implement
nontraditional characteristics of core fixed-income and equity
portfolios to help generate returns."
