M* Scrutinizes Hancock's Culture

News summary by MFWire's editors

John Hancock [profile] gets a moment in the Morningstar sun today, with a Fund Spy column by Shannon Zimmerman detailing the "evolving culture" at the Boston fund shop.
While recent developments at the firm seem promising, substantial challenges remain. Hancock's funds are too expensive on average, and the managers who run them invest too little. The firm's subadvised business model may be costlier to run than one executed with in-house resources, but Hancock could address both issues by lowering fees.
Zimmerman says Morningstar is "optimistic" about the shop's future, though it remains a "work in progress."

He delves specifically into the the corporate culture at Hancock, focusing on how the subadvised business model allow the culture to be shaped at least partially by the smaller shops that run funds.
