SLGI Asset Management Inc. introduced two new actively managed funds on Monday.
Sub-advised by KBI Global Investors (North America) Ltd., the Sun Life KBI Sustainable Infrastructure Private Pool aims to support growing investor demand for sustainable investing while offering income and inflation protection, the release said.
The new pool focuses primarily on water and food infrastructure and technological advances in clean, efficient, renewable sources of energy.
“We believe there is an intersection of sustainable investments and investment opportunities that are financially beneficial for investors. Launching the Pool broadens our platform of investment solutions available to clients,” said Oricia Smith, president, SLGI Asset Management, and senior-vice president, investment solutions, with Sun Life Canada.
The Sun Life MFS U.S. Mid Cap Growth Fund is designed to seek long-term capital appreciation and risk-adjusted returns by investing in medium-sized U.S. companies, the release said.
The fund is sub-advised by MFS Investment Management Canada Limited and leverages the global research platform of the Sun Life MFS U.S. Growth Fund.
