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.
Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may
be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus
