SLC Management is a global institutional asset manager that provides innovative and diversified solutions to meet our clients’ evolving needs. Our history of organic and strategic growth reflects this commitment.

Sun Life Investment Management, now SLC Management, began in 2014 when our parent company Sun Life created Sun Life Institutional Investments (Canada) Inc., to offer a range of institutional alternative asset class funds and liability-driven investing strategies to institutional investors in Canada.

Our reach and capabilities grew with the acquisitions in 2015 of Bentall Kennedy Group in North America, and Prime Advisors, Inc. ® and Ryan Labs Asset Management Inc. in the United States. And we capped 2018 with an announcement of our intention to acquire a majority interest in global real estate investment firm GreenOak Real Estate.

In June 2019, we launched our new brand SLC Management and fully merged our fixed income businesses, Ryan Labs Asset Management Inc. and Prime Advisors, Inc. with Sun Life Capital Management (U.S.) LLC on January 1, 2020. In July 2019, we completed a merger of the Bentall Kennedy Group with GreenOak Real Estate to form BentallGreenOak Real Estate.

On July 1, 2020 our capabilities expanded once again with the completion of the acquisition of a majority stake in InfraRed Capital Partners (InfraRed), a UK based global infrastructure manager. This transaction provides SLC Management clients with a broader range of investment opportunities to help meet their investment needs and advance sustainable investment options. 

On January 5, 2021, the transaction to acquire a majority stake in Crescent Capital Group was completed. Founded in 1991, Crescent is one of the longest tenured credit managers in the industry and is a leader in mezzanine debt, middle market direct lending in the U.S. and Europe, high-yield bonds and broadly syndicated loans.  

Our clients have access to a full spectrum of insurance and pension asset management solutions. Today, the combined assets of SLC Management are diversified across public and private fixed income, infrastructure and real estate equity and debt. We are proud to serve pension plans, insurance companies and other institutional investors such as sponsors of foundations and endowments as our clients.

We have offices in major cities across Canada and in the United States, and in Europe and Asia.
