Nokia Corp., Murray Hill, N.J., hired additional money managers as underlying managers of its active domestic large-cap growth and active domestic large-cap value equity funds in the Nokia Savings/401(k) Plan, according to a notification brochure on the plan's website.

Nokia hired Jacobs Levy Equity Management to join existing manager MFS Investment Management as underlying managers of the U.S. large-cap growth equity fund, and LSV Asset Management and Pzena Investment Management to join existing manager AJO as underlying managers of the U.S. large-cap value equity fund. The changes in underlying managers is effective April 3. The brochure said the changes were made to further diversify active management risk.

Formerly the Alcatel-Lucent Savings/401(k) Plan, the plan officially took on the new name on Jan. 1, 2017, following Nokia's November 2016 purchase of Alcatel-Lucent.
