Polen Capital will manage a growth strategy; Herndon Capital, value.
Funding will come from reducing a Northern Trust S&P 500 index fund where $85 million was parked from the April terminations of global equity managers Aletheia Research and Management, which handled $55 million, and Tradewinds Global Investors, $30 million.
