Alignment with client interests

We share a common purpose with our clients – to meet their long-term financial obligations. We focus on providing diversified investments and a reasonable level of total return, with a view to sustainable economic growth. The SLC Management Group of companies manage over $274 billion in assets on behalf of our clients, who include pension plans, insurance companies, endowments and foundations and sub-advisor clients.

But there is no better partnership than having your manager invest money next to you. We do that on a scale that most managers cannot. As of December 31, 2021, Sun Life has invested $13.5 billion in private fixed income investments alongside our clients.
