About Manulife Mutual Funds

A rich history of successful investing

Dating back to 1887 when Manulife’s first president was Sir John A. MacDonald, Canada’s first prime minister, Manulife Financial has been wisely managing billions of dollars in diverse investments across varying asset classes and geographies. This has given us experience in wealth and investment management that few financial services firms can match.

In 1996, Manulife Financial purchased Canadian mutual fund manufacturer Elliott & Page Ltd. (est. 1949) with the intent of establishing a significant mutual fund organization in Canada. Since then, our mutual fund business has seen strong growth both organically and through acquisition. In 2010, a rebranding initiative eliminated the Elliott & Page name in favour of Manulife Mutual Funds, to create a stronger tie with the Manulife parent company name.

We are proud of our rich and successful history of serving Canadian investors and moving forward, Manulife Mutual Funds is committed to expanding the depth and breadth of high quality mutual fund solutions to help our clients meet their needs today and in the future.

You can feel confident knowing that your investments are being managed by a proven mutual fund company like Manulife. Let Manulife Mutual Funds help you get your investments off your mind.

A global investment management firm

There is a fundamental difference between an investment management firm with offices only in Canada who invests globally, versus a global investment firm with offices located around the world. Manulife Mutual Funds is a true global fund company with investment professionals, assets under management and a local market presence throughout the world. Being “on the ground” in international markets provides Manulife Mutual Funds with the opportunity to uncover investment opportunities others may not be aware of or have overlooked.

The emerging market countries including the Asia Pacific region are fast becoming the growth engine of the new global economy and Manulife is ideally positioned to tap into this opportunity.

Manulife has operated in Asia since 1897 and has the largest footprint in this region versus our Canadian competitors, with over 115 investment professionals located in 11 Asian countries.
