Our fund managers

You should know who's managing your money

Our mutual funds are managed by professional portfolio managers who buy the securities in each fund.

A team of experts supporting you

Professional fund mangers ensure the securities they buy and the asset classes they invest in are in line with the fund’s investment objective—and yours. Fund managers must have the right education, professional credentials and investment management experience. 

Meet our fund managers

To determine suitability for investors, Canada Life Mutual Funds and Canada Life Pathways fund managers are regularly reviewed and monitored for corporate structure, compliance processes, investment style and risk, and investment performance.
