  • John Hancock Investment Management offers new fixed-income solution suite from veteran Manulife Investment Management team

    October 23, 2019 by John Hancock

    Portfolio managers Howard Greene and Jeff Given bring more than 50 years of combined experience to their disciplined investment process

    TSX/NYSE/PSE: MFC     SEHK: 945

    BOSTONOct. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – John Hancock Investment Management today announced the expansion of its suite of fixed-income funds managed by the veteran portfolio management team of Howard Greene and Jeffrey Given. The team at Manulife Investment Management1, John Hancock Investment Management’s affiliated asset manager, now manages John Hancock Short Duration Bond Fund in addition to its highly rated John Hancock Bond and John Hancock Investment Grade Bond funds. A version of the Bond and Investment Grade Bond strategies are also now available as separately managed accounts to give additional flexibility to financial advisors and their clients. Together, Howard and Jeff bring more than 50 years of combined investment experience to overseeing the funds.

    “Discipline is key, especially in an uncertain economic environment,” said Howard. “We’re staying focused on fundamentals and trying to avoid unnecessary turnover—we’ve consistently moved more incrementally than some of our peers.”  

    Jeff added, “Overall, our investment process strives to creates a high degree of transparency. We think that’s important both in helping to control risk in the portfolio and ultimately in giving investors the kind of ballast they’re often looking for in a fixed-income allocation.”

    John Hancock Bond and Investment Grade Bond Funds are both five-star Morningstar rated funds; that’s relative to the 631 funds in the intermediate core-plus bond category and 409 funds in the intermediate core bond category, respectively.2 John Hancock Short Duration Bond Fund is not yet rated as it began operations on July 16, 2019.

    “Investors are concerned about interest rates, tariffs and trade, and how to position their portfolios,” said Andrew G. Arnott, president and CEO of John Hancock Investment Management and head of Wealth and

    Asset Management, United States and Europe, for Manulife Investment Management. “We’re pleased to be able to offer a full suite of fixed-income solutions from a veteran team, so that advisors can build a portfolio custom-suited to their clients’ particular needs.”

    For each managed product, including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts, with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Exchange-traded funds and open-end mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. The top 10.0% of funds in each category, the next 22.5%, 35.0%, 22.5%, and bottom 10.0% receive 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1 star(s), respectively. The overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The rating formula most heavily weights the 3-year rating, using the following calculation: 100% 3-year rating for 36 to 59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60 to 119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. Star ratings do not reflect the effect of any applicable sales load. Morningstar’s extended performance rating is calculated by adjusting the historical total returns of the oldest share class to reflect the fee structure of a younger share class, and then compounding the combined record of actual and adjusted performance into the 3-, 5-, and 10-year time periods necessary to produce Morningstar Risk Adjusted Returns and a Morningstar Rating. Extended performance ratings do not affect actual Morningstar ratings; the overall ratings for multi-share class funds are based on actual performance only or extended performance only. Once a share class turns 3 years old, the overall Morningstar Rating will be based on actual ratings only. Adjusted historical performance is only an approximation of actual returns, and Morningstar’s calculation methodology may differ from those used by other entities. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Other share classes may be rated differently.
