John Hancock Funds has launched the John Hancock Strategic Income Opportunities Fund, an unconstrained version of the John Hancock Strategic Income Fund.

“We already had a very strong fixed income product line,” said John Hancock President and CEO Keith F. Hartstein. “More than 80% of our fixed income funds have outperformed their Lipper peers over the three-, five- and 10-year periods ended Dec. 31, 2009. With this addition, we’re leveraging the capabilities of [sub-advisor] MFC Global Investment Management to offer investors an intriguing option to help diversify the fixed income portion of their portfolios.”
