Family of award–winning funds
You have a broad choice of over 80 investment funds – many with top industry awards. You have access to a number of Canada’s top fund managers through a full spectrum of funds in various asset classes ranging from our unique Manulife Advantage GIF Select Fund to specialty equity funds.

In the event of death, the proceeds of the contract have the ability to pass privately2 and directly to your designated beneficiaries, without the time delay and expense of probate.
