Sun Life Global Investments enhances fund lineup

Funds build upon growing platform of investment solutions

TORONTO, Sept. 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Sun Life Global Investments (Canada) Inc. today announced the addition of three mutual funds to its growing platform of investment solutions, delivering on its commitment to offer greater access to world-class asset managers and more choice to Canadian investors.

"These funds are part of our goal to help Canadians better diversify their portfolios with a range of asset classes, investment styles and geographic regions," said Sadiq S. Adatia, Chief Investment Officer, Sun Life Global Investments (Canada) Inc. "We are excited about our new sub-advisors: Tradewinds and Beutel, Goodman & Company Ltd. as well as our latest offering with McLean Budden."

The new funds include a Canadian bond fund, a monthly income fund and an emerging markets fund. The Canadian bond fund will be sub-advised by Beutel Goodman, a firm with over 40 years experience and over $24 billion in assets under management and the monthly income fund will be sub-advised by McLean Budden, one of Canada's oldest and most respected investment firms who manage over $33 billion in assets. The emerging markets fund will be sub-advised by Tradewinds, a Los Angeles based global investment management firm with over US$37 billion in assets under management.

"Emerging Markets represent a large opportunity for Canadians, who traditionally like to invest in their home country," said Adatia. "This fund allows Canadians to acquire additional diversification through the global equity component of their portfolio."

Sun Life Global Investments will also be offering many of its mutual funds in Series T units allowing investors access to a steady, tax-efficient stream of cash flow.

The new funds will be available through our extensive distribution reach, which includes Sun Life advisors, MFDA and IIROC advisors.
