Kansas Board of Regents, Topeka, added the JHancock Disciplined Value Mid Cap Fund to the investment options lineup of its $5 billion 403(b) mandatory retirement plan.
The domestic midcap value equity fund managed by John Hancock Investment Management and subadvised by Boston Partners Global Investors replaced the TIAA-CREF Mid-Cap Value Institutional fund, a similar fund managed by Nuveen, according to materials for the Oct. 19 retirement plan committee meeting.
The materials did not give a reason for the change. As of June 30, the TIAA-CREF Mid-Cap Value Fund had $58 million in assets in the plan, according to a plan performance report.
Board spokesman Matthew Keith could not be immediately reached for further information.
