Hartford Funds has named Wellington Management Company’s Nanette Abuhoff Jacobson as global investment strategist. She succeeds Jim Rullo, who will retire from Wellington Management at the end of June.
As global investment strategist, Jacobson will analyze and write about markets and investment opportunities for Hartford Funds’ sales organization, the financial advisor community, and major broker-dealers and distributors, according to the firm.
“Her regular market insights will be invaluable to broker-dealer firms and financial advisors, and will be a differentiator for Hartford Funds,” stated Jim Davey, president of Hartford Funds.
Previously, Jacobson was Wellington Management’s director of Fixed Income Product Management, responsible for ensuring the integrity of the firm’s fixed-income approaches and driving business strategy, product development, and client retention.
