The new name
will go into effect on or around February 16, the company said. While the fund
names will change to feature Prudential’s name, the funds’ ticker symbols,
investment objectives, and portfolio management teams will remain unchanged.
Jennison-managed funds will continue to carry the Jennison name as “Prudential Jennison.” Dryden and JennisonDryden-named funds will be renamed Prudential.
After the name change, financial professionals can continue to search by fund
name, but will need to search under “Prudential” to bring up a complete list of
funds. A complete list of name changes is available here (click on the banner).
Prudential has offered mutual funds for more than 20 years, and has sold them under the JennisonDryden name since 2003.
