Canada Life has added nine segregated funds to its product shelf, the Winnipeg-based firm stated in a release on Monday.

The new funds capitalize on global exposure.

“Working with our advisors, we’ve identified the need for more global investment options for our customers,” said Hugh Moncrieff, executive vice-president of advisory network and industry affairs at Canada Life, in the release.

Last fall, Canada Life moved to one shelf of segregated funds as its parent company, Great-West Lifeco Inc., consolidated its three life insurance companies — Great-West Life Assurance Co., London Life Insurance Co. and the Canada Life Assurance Co. — under the Canada Life brand.

The new funds will complement the shelf by helping customers “increase their exposure to global funds and further diversify their portfolios to meet their investment needs,” said Paul Orlander, executive vice-president of individual customer at Canada Life, in the release.

The new funds are shown in the table below.
