The models are designed to fit investor objectives and risk tolerance while helping advisors and their clients by providing a diversified asset allocation portfolio supported by John Hancock Investment Management's multimanager network.

"We are seeing good response to our multimanager model portfolios, which are built with the expertise of our asset allocation team and leverage the enormous scope of manager research that's available.
