Western University Selects Sun Life Financial to Provide Retirement Income Fund to Retirees

Sun Life Financial announced that it has been chosen by Western University to provide a Retirement Income Fund (RIF) to its retirees, both current and future. RIFs provide retirement income to an individual by directly transferring money from an RRSP. Each year the RIF holder must withdraw a set portion of the money in the fund and pay tax on it. The University had been exploring the possibility of moving their in-house managed $250 million RIF to an external provider and received approval from the Western Board of Governors in November to enter into an agreement with Sun Life Financial. Sun Life Financial provides employees with solutions as they prepare for their unique retirement goals. This continues through their working career and as they transition to retirement. The new RIF program offers competitive fees, familiar investment choices and a number of features and benefits that are not available to Western retirees.
