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.
Under the Sun Life Investment Management brand, 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. In 2018, we announced the addition of a five-person Leveraged Finance Group to the firm bringing expertise in managing senior loan portfolios, and third-party managed collateralized loan obligation (CLO) investments. And we capped 2018 with our intention to acquire a majority interest in global real estate investment firm GreenOak Real Estate, which will merge with Bentall Kennedy under the name BentallGreenOak in the second half of 2019.
In June 2019, we launched our new brand SLC Management and announced our intention to fully merge our fixed income businesses, that is, merging Ryan Labs Asset Management Inc. and Prime Advisors, Inc. with Sun Life Capital Management (Canada) Inc. on or around December 31, 2019. Our clients will continue to benefit from the expertise of their current investment teams and access to a full spectrum of insurance and pensions asset management solutions. Today, the combined assets of SLC Management are diversified across public and private fixed income, and real estate equity and debt (through Bentall Kennedy, a SLC Management company). 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.
