A message from our CEO and chairperson of the board

March 2021



As we head into spring, there are lots of positive developments emerging in 2021 from multiple vaccine approvals, and their ongoing distribution, to the likelihood of a strong global economic recovery in the second half of the year. For those overseeing their investments, we believe the counsel of a trusted financial professional matters more than ever. In times of significant change, it's important to review your investment plan with a financial professional to assist you in meeting your long-term goals.

As a supplement to our last quarterly shareholder update in December 2020, we kicked off the first in a series of quarterly video conversations we’ll be having about finance-related topics, which we hope will inform your view of John Hancock Investment Management and be of interest to you.

For our second conversation, we discussed the challenges and opportunities during the pandemic and beyond and how the John Hancock Group of Funds Board of Trustees is thinking about these issues through the lens of its oversight role in protecting the interests of shareholders.
