How do we stand apart?
To answer that question, imagine if you had someone looking out for your financial future every day.
That is precisely what we do at Sun Life Global Investments. Whether you are saving for the future or want a guaranteed income, we have the products and strategies that can help.
We bring the world to your portfolio
Building wealth today requires you to look beyond Canada’s borders. We are part of the Sun Life group of companies, a global asset manager with offices in nearly 20 countries and over $1 trillion under management. And we’ve built a truly global investment platform by combining the strength of Sun Life with some of the best asset managers in the world.
We’re built to manage many levels of risk
With our roots in the insurance business, we are built to manage the risks that concern investors today:
Markets – Am I exposed to market volatility?
Performance – Are my investments managed effectively?
Inflation – Will my savings retain their value?
Mortality – What happens to my investments when I die?
Longevity – Will I outlive my savings?
So, what does it mean when we say we are built to address many levels of risk? We have the product depth you need to help manage risk. It may be one of our guaranteed investment funds (GIFs), that provide guarantees at death. Or an investment that reduces your exposure to equity market risk, such as a mutual fund that invests in bonds, or a balance of equities and bonds.
Pursuing strong results
Many investors are worried about the income they’ll need in retirement. Here, we have several equity and balanced mutual funds that accept a degree of market risk, offering greater return potential in exchange for that risk. By selecting from our mutual funds and our guaranteed products, advisors and investors can fine-tune their portfolios for today’s various challenges.
Managed portfolios: pension-like focus
Pension plans focus on managing risk. Similarly, with Sun Life Granite Managed Portfolios, you work with your financial advisor to choose a portfolio that suits your risk tolerance, ranging from conservative to growth. Our portfolio managers take over from there with a pension-like strategy – monitoring the portfolios to maximize return potential.
Investing with guarantees
Our Sun Life Guaranteed Investment Funds (GIFs) can protect your savings, and allow you to lock-in a lifetime of guaranteed income. These segregated fund contracts offer the beneﬁts of protection and potential for investment growth. And Sun Life Global Investments stands out as a company that can offer investments with or without guarantees, allowing you to address even more dimensions of risk.
