Sun Life Grepa launches new fund that tracks market opportunity movement

·2 min read

WITH the unexpected onslaught of a worldwide pandemic, the importance of preparing for a financially secured future has never been more emphasized than now.

In encouraging people to keep focused on their financial journey, Sun Life Grepa Financial Inc. (Sun Life Grepa), a major life insurance company in the Philippines, is introducing a new fund option for Filipinos who are ready to experience potentially higher returns from equity investment but are unsure if they can withstand the increased risk that goes with it.

This new fund called SLG Opportunity Tracker Fund is a peso-denominated variable universal life (VUL) fund option of the company’s Sun Grepa Power Builder peso products which provide guaranteed life insurance coverage.

As a balanced fund, the SLG Opportunity Tracker Fund provides a middle ground between equity and fixed income asset classes. However, what differentiates it from other balanced funds in the market is that it utilizes an indexing strategy by tracking the performance of the Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi) and the portfolio duration of the Bloomberg Phil Sovereign Bond Index AI (BPHILR).

Fund management is also completely systematic, because it follows a rules-based asset allocation approach that aims to manage risk and return. Moreover, the Fund is managed by Sun Life Grepa’s team of professional fund managers, who will ensure that the Fund will provide optimum returns consisting of current income and capital growth through investment in a mix of fixed-income and equity instruments.

“What we offer is an effective risk-management tool that will help Filipinos pursue opportunities even in times of market uncertainty, just like what we are experiencing now. Whether you’re a young professional eager to build your wealth, or an experienced investor who are looking for options to diversify your portfolio, you can indeed benefit from this Fund,” said Sun Life Grepa president Richard S. Lim. “The SLG Opportunity Tracker Fund allows you to experience potentially higher returns from equities along with the stability of a fixed income asset while managing volatility and risk through its systematic fund allocation approach and indexing strategy,” Lim concludes.
