Winnipeg, MB, May 11, 2020. . . Canada Life today announced that it’s strengthening its segregated fund shelf by adding nine new global funds.

These new funds leverage strong global investment competencies of some of the world’s largest investment fund managers, and capitalize on opportunities outside of Canada, offering customers’ portfolios more diversification and stable returns throughout a full market cycle.

“Last fall, we took the best-of-the-best segregated fund mandates from Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life to create a stronger Canada Life shelf that provides solutions designed to perform across a full market cycle,” said Paul Orlander, Executive Vice-President, Individual Customer, Canada Life. “These new funds will enhance and complement our existing shelf, helping our customers increase their exposure to global funds and further diversify their portfolios to meet their investment needs.”

“Working with our advisors, we’ve identified the need for more global investment options for our customers. These mandates are in demand across the industry,” said Hugh Moncrieff, Executive Vice-President, Advisory Network and Industry Affairs, Canada Life. “These new funds will give advisors and their customers highly competitive solutions that provide access to growth and innovation from around the world, equipping Canadians with customized solutions to help them achieve their financial goals.”
