The Hartford Financial Services Group has revamped its flagship Director variable annuity, renaming it The Director M, and adding six new investment managers. The previous iteration of the contract had only two investment managers but now more closely resembles The Hartford Leaders series of variable annuities, which feature sub-accounts managed by five investment managers.

"We want to introduce new choices to customers while continuing to provide the value they have come to expect from The Hartford," said John Walters, executive vice president of the investment products division. "Investors can now access an enhanced lineup of products and continue to enjoy our income protection benefits, death benefits, customer service and distribution excellence."
