John Hancock Blue Chip Growth Manager to Retire, but Future Still Bright

Analyst Note

| |

Larry Puglia, manager of John Hancock Blue Chip Growth since 2005 and of T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth since its 1993 inception, will retire from subadvisor T. Rowe Price at year-end 2021. A well-telegraphed transition has been in the works since Paul Greene became associate portfolio manager in January 2020, and he'll officially take over on Oct. 1, 2021. With a smooth handoff setting the stage for continued success, the strategy retains its Above Average Process and People ratings. Its Morningstar Analyst Rating ranges from Silver to Neutral, depending on each share class' fees.
