As a result of a thorough business review, the respective boards of Grepalife Asset Management Corporation (GAMC) and of Grepalife Funds have decided that the companies will conclude operations effective December 31, 2019 (subject to regulatory approvals). The business decision was approved in agreement with parent company Sun Life Grepa as part of re-aligning efforts and resources within the latter’s core life insurance business and goal to be among the top life insurance providers in the country.
Q&A for Clients:
1. What happens to clients’ investments? What should clients do?
In compliance with SEC regulations, clients have the option to redeem all their shares until December 10, 2019. After redemption, they have the option to re-direct their investments to equivalent or strategically aligned managed funds under RCBC, Sun Life Grepa, and/ or Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI). This allows clients an opportunity to evaluate new growth possibilities for their investments under the care of professional fund management teams.
If clients do not redeem by that date, the investment will be transferred to escrow. When in escrow, clients can still withdraw their investment by coordinating directly with RCBC Trust and Investment Group.
2. Will there be fees in the redemption of shares?
Redemption fees will be waived by Grepalife Funds.
3. How will investors/ shareholders re-direct their investments?
Clients can call GAMC Investor Services at 8666375/ 8666387, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0918-9903863 for assistance in the redemption and re-direction of investments.
