What is it?

Shareholders have the right and responsibility to vote on certain aspects of a company's business. Mutual funds hold shares of companies and its unit holders are entitled to exercise their voting rights. This is most often done through the use of proxies. A proxy is the legal transfer of a shareholder's right to vote to the professionals who manage their investments. 

Our approach

Sun Life Global Investments requires its investment sub-advisors to have proxy voting policies in place. These serve as guidelines for voting proxies in the best interests of shareholders.

Each year, we provide the voting records of our mutual funds that hold voting securities. These are available on our website by August 31 for the previous period (July 1 – June 30).

Can't find a proxy voting record of a fund?

Some funds invest in non-voting securities or in units of investment funds. Funds launched after June 30 will have their proxy records disclosed by August 31 of the subsequent annual period.

IRC report as of December 31, 2019

Information for mutual fund investors who are U.S. taxpayers

To support investors who are affected by the Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC) rules, we provide PFIC Annual Information Statements for 25 of our mutual funds, should investors choose to make Qualified Electing Fund (QEF) elections on their U.S. income tax return.

What is a PFIC?

A Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC) is defined as a non-U.S. corporation (or a non-U.S. entity treated under U.S. tax principles as a corporation) where 75% or more of its gross income is passive income, or at least 50% of the corporation's assets produce or are held to produce passive income. Under this definition, Canadian mutual funds are treated as PFICs.

How do PFICs work?

U.S. taxpayers who hold Canadian mutual funds in a non-registered account are likely subject to PFIC rules and are required to report income from each PFIC when filing U.S. income tax returns.

The PFIC rules are complex. It’s recommended that U.S. taxpayers consult their tax advisor concerning the overall tax consequences of their ownership of the fund and their U.S. tax reporting requirements.
