Sun Life Launches Its First Sustainability-Driven Vul Fund

Filipinos looking to seize bright opportunities through responsible investing can now avail the Peso Global Sustainability Growth Fund, the first sustainability-driven VUL equity fund from Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc.

The Fund aims to generate long-term capital appreciation by investing in global funds that are focused on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors. It aims to deliver this long-term value through strong fundamentals and sustainable investing principles.

“The Fund is perfect for those who want to diversify their assets while looking to contribute to global sustainable progress,” Sun Life Philippines CEO and Country Head Benedict Sison said.

The Peso Global Sustainability Growth Fund can be availed as a fund option with the following Sun Life PHP-denominated investment-linked insurance products: Sun FlexiLink, Sun FlexiLink1, Sun MaxiLink 100, Sun MaxiLink Prime, Sun MaxiLink Bright, and Sun MaxiLink One.

“This means that aside from being able to make a positive impact in the world, clients can also address their wealth accumulation and protection needs,” Sison added.

The launch of the Fund is just one of the many ways Sun Life is contributing to build a brighter and more sustainable future for Filipinos.

During Sun Life’s Financial Independence Month campaign launch, it bared its sustainability agenda that aligns with the United Nations Sustainability Goals. Its focus areas include Increasing Financial Security, Fostering Healthier Lives, Advancing Sustainable Investing, Operating as a Trusted and Responsible Business, and Uplifting Communities.

“Sun Life has always been sustainability driven as it is essential to our long-term success. That’s why we strive to embed it in all aspects of the business, including our strategy, operations, and culture. But more than this, being ESG-focused is simply the right thing to do to ensure that the next generations have a bright and sustainable future,” Sison said.
