New fund management subsidiary will resume fund management responsibilities for Canada Life Mutual Funds and Canada Life Pathways Funds
Winnipeg, MB, January 8, 2021. . . Canada Life today announced the launch of its new fund management subsidiary, Canada Life Investment Management Limited (CLIML).
