Great-West Lifeco Inc. reported Wednesday that its total assets under administration (AUA) as of Dec. 31 were $2.3 trillion, up 15% from a year earlier.

“I am proud of how our Sun Life employees and advisors continued to drive positive financial and health impacts for our clients, especially now, when they need us most.”

Of Sun Life’s $1.44 trillion at the end of 2021, $205 billion was in general funds, $140 billion was in segregated funds and $1.1 trillion was in mutual funds, managed funds and other AUM.
