Building differentiated portfolios

As a result, his portfolios are often markedly different from traditional benchmark-oriented strategies.

Mr. Glancy is Portfolio Manager of Putnam Capital Spectrum Fund and Putnam Equity Spectrum Fund. He joined Putnam in 2009 and has been in the investment industry since 1987.
