Emerging markets funds invest in companies and governments of developing countries around the world. In 2018, Sun Life Global Investments acquired Excel Funds – an experienced investment manager specializing in emerging markets funds. The acquisition broadens our product shelf and provides access to an even broader global sub-advisor network.
WHY EMERGING MARKETS, WHY NOW
