SLAMCI garnered a total of five recognition in the 10th Philippine Investment Funds Association (PIFA) Awards.

The event is organized by PIFA, the trade organization of the Philippines’ mutual fund industry, and aims to recognize the top performing mutual funds based on returns.
Meanwhile, Sun Life’s fund managers were also feted in the Asset Awards in Hong Kong. The company’s Fixed Income Team led by Sun Life Chief Investments Officer Michael Enriquez ranked 2 nd in the “Best Investment House in the Asian Local Currency Bond” category.

This will certainly give us the boost to finish the year strong and make 2016 remarkable for all our investors,” Sun Life President Valerie Pama said. “We dedicate this triumph to them and we thank them for trusting us to be their partner in their financial journey.”
