Harbor Small Cap Value Is Closing to New Investors; Ratings Unchanged

Analyst Note

| |

Harbor Small Cap Value will close to new investors beginning June 1, 2021. As of Dec. 31, 2020, total strategy assets were $5.9 billion, with the mutual fund representing around $2.2 billion of that. The fund has experienced moderate but steady inflows, taking in an estimated $175 million and $475 million over the respective one- and three-year periods ended Jan. 31, 2021. While the team at subadvisor Earnest Partners doesn't trade frequently, it still needs a manageable asset base. The strategy is concentrated, resulting in larger stakes in companies that can be harder to build or sell in the open market. The decision to close the fund to new investment should help the team continue to execute its process, which remains rated Above Average. The strategy still receives a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver for cheaper share classes and Bronze for more expensive ones.
