The list also includes Harbor Robeco Emerging Markets Active Equities Fund and Harbor Mid Cap Fund.
The addition of US mid cap offering expands Harbor Capital Advisors’ partnership with EARNEST Partners.
With these offerings, Harbor Capital Advisors seeks to offer the investors with the choice to make low-volatile investments with better downside protection.
Harbor Capital Advisors head of distribution John Halaby said: “This expansion of our investment options reflects Harbor’s commitment to delivering clients a diverse range of active, cost-aware investment solutions that seek to add more opportunity for return than enhanced index options given elevated expectations around volatility.
“We know this is top-of-mind for advisors and want to deliver Harbor solutions that they can use that address client concerns.
“Additionally, we are finding continued opportunities in equities across value and growth with EARNEST at the helm, and believe expanding into mid-caps offers advisors more ways to thoughtfully take advantage of a time-tested investment process.”
Harbor Capital Advisors operates as the investment adviser with each fund managed by an institutional investment firm.
As of 31 October 2019, Harbor Funds had combined net assets of nearly $45bn.
