Sun Life Global Investments announces fee reduction to Sun Life Milestone 2020 Fund

TORONTO, March 8, 2017 /CNW/ - Sun Life Global Investments announced today that it will implement a reduction of the Sun Life Milestone 2020 Fund management fee of 30 basis points to 1.00%, effective March 31, 2017.

This change is consistent with the overall fee framework for Sun Life Global Investments' Milestone series of funds, acknowledging the funds' changing asset mix through time and reducing fees as the funds become more conservative. The trailing commissions for the fund remain unchanged as set out in the fund's current prospectus.

The investment objective of the fund is to seek long-term capital appreciation and, in respect of each series, to pay, on the scheduled Maturity Date, an amount per unit equal to the greatest of the following three values: (i) $10.00 per unit (the net asset value per unit on the start date of the Fund), (ii) the highest month-end net asset value per unit during the period from the start date until the scheduled Maturity Date, or (iii) the net asset value per unit on the scheduled Maturity Date of the Fund (the "Guaranteed Value"). The objective of the fund remains unchanged.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Please read the prospectus before investing. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
