Sun Life Asset Management and Investa announce partnership

Mutual funds managed by Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI) will soon be available via  the Investa App, after the company entered into a partnership with InvestaFinancial, Inc.  

The partnership was recently formalized in a virtual ceremony graced by SLAMCI President Gerald  Bautista, SLAMCI Banks and Alternative Distribution Channel Manager Angeline Cruz, Investa CEO and  Co-founder JC Bisnar, and Investa’s Senior Operations and Partnership Manager Erwin Angeles.  

“SLAMCI has always been committed to making investing more accessible to Filipinos. Through this  collaboration with Investa, the largest and fastest growing social-financial platform in the country, we can  make a big leap towards this goal,” Bautista said. “This is likewise aligned with our goal of digitalizing the  Filipinos’ investing experience, so that it can be easily integrated into their lifestyle.”

Meanwhile, Bisnar highlighted how Investagrams and SLAMCI were aligned in its advocacy of bringing  prosperity to more Filipinos through financial literacy and investing opportunities. “Filipinos are very  hardworking, but opportunities to be more prosperous aren’t readily available to them. That’s what we  hope to address,” he said. 

Under the partnership, Sun Life Prosperity Funds will be made accessible to Investa’s over one million  subscribers. They simply need to choose the fund that suits their risk appetite best, whether  conservative, moderate, balanced, growth or aggressive. 

With Investa, SLAMCI expands its roster of broker partners to a total of nine (9). The other partners  include COL Financial, First Metro Securities (FirstMetroSec), Wealth Securities (WSI), Unicapital  Securities (UTrade), AB Capital Securities (ABCSI), Rampver Financials, BDO Securities and Citi Financial  Services and Insurance Brokerage (CFSI). This initiative is the latest among SLAMCI’s many efforts to  make investing a more delightful experience for Filipinos. Even amid the pandemic, the company has  been providing seamless service to its investors, enabling them to stay on track in their financial journey.  It also remains to be the largest non-bank asset management company in the country in terms of assets  under management. 

“Our promise to be the Filipinos’ partner in their pursuit of prosperity remains,” Bautista said. “We are  thankful for our investors’ trust and will always strive to bring them the best possible service we can  offer.”
