John Hancock Funds has unveiled a new 'Insights & Commentary' section on its website featuring commentary and thought leadership on topics ranging from alternative asset classes to the Eurozone debt crisis.

The 'Insights & Commentary' section highlights economic and market outlooks, strategy updates, thought leadership and news from John Hancock's Investment Management Services team and from investment managers who provide portfolio management for John Hancock Funds, including John Hancock Asset Management, Dimensional Fund Advisors, Robeco Investment Management, Standard Life Investments, GMO, Wellington Management, and others.

"Advisers and investors are looking for guidance, but they are constantly bombarded with information, overwhelmingly of the 'sound bite' variety with limited value," stated Cathy Lazdowski, head of investment marketing for John Hancock Funds.

"We wanted to provide a source of thoughtful, in-depth research and analysis that advisers can turn to for a fresh perspective."

The Boston-based mutual fund business unit of John Hancock Financial, John Hancock Funds manages more than $73.7 billion in open-end funds, closed-end funds, private accounts, college savings and retirement plans, and related party assets for individual and institutional investors as of June 30.
