Sun Life Asset Management (HK) Limited – Introducing Multi-manager Investment Approach

Sun Life Asset Management (HK) Limited (“Sun Life Asset Management”) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sun Life Hong Kong Limited.

In order to pursue sustainable long-term performance, Sun Life Asset Management introduced multi-manager investment approach to the Scheme. Under our multi-manager platform at the underlying fund level, a constituent fund is a portfolio management fund investing in different approved pooled investment funds (“APIF”) and/or approved index-tracking collective investment schemes (“Approved ITCIS”). This approach allows Sun Life Asset Management, based on various factors, such as investment styles of underlying funds and market conditions, to actively allocate assets among performing underlying fund managers. In addition, this approach can effectively reduce concentration risk by not relying on a single underlying fund manager and enables our members to benefit from investment expertise from around the world. Currently, 9 out of 14 constituent funds have adopted this approach.

 

Constituent Fund Choices

To meet different retirement needs and goals of our members, the Scheme offers 14 constituent funds. The following summary of constituent fund choices includes the investment objective and investment mix of each constituent fund available under the Scheme.

Note: Members should note that the pre-determined asset allocation under “Fund Cruiser” is a standard arrangement only and does not constitute any investment advice to individual members.
