Harbor Capital Appreciation Fund Update—August 2019

We visited the offices of Jennison Associates, subadvisor to Harbor Capital Appreciation, and our discussions confirmed the many qualitative positives behind our use of the fund in many of our portfolios. We are confident it will continue to outperform the large-cap growth index and the broader S&P 500. Capacity constraints are not a concern given the strategy invests predominantly in large-cap U.S. stocks. And the fund’s five-year trailing returns have consistently ranked in the top third of its category in recent years.
