MFWire could not immediately reach a Victory spokesperson for comment on the changes. Victory bought Munder in the fall; both were backed by the same private equity firm, Crestview Partners.

In addition to the growth opportunities mutual fund, Gura, Lebovitz, Ralston, and Smith also PMed a similar large cap growth strategies for separate accounts and a multi-cap strategy.
