Ohio Fund Group Heading for the Big City
By relocating its headquarters to Chicago, an Ohio-based fund firm plans to take advantage of richer human resources and industry services.
Harbor Capital Advisors, purchased by Dutch firm Robeco Groep from Owens-Illinois in 2001, announced plans to move 70 of 80 jobs out of its downtown Toledo base next year, the Toledo Blade has reported.
The fourteen no-load Harbor Funds have approximately $33 billion in assets.
Spokesperson John Hoff said the move reflects a trend towards specialization in the fund industry, in comments that suggested new hires on the horizon.
"They felt they needed to be in a location where they have access to employees and services that have specific knowledge, specific experience in the mutual fund industry," he said.
