RELATED TOPICS​

Sun Life Investment Management has appointed Sam Tillinghast as President, US Private Credit. In this new role, Tillinghast will be responsible for leading Sun Life Investment Management’s existing US Private Fixed Income Group, as well as growing its third-party institutional business. 

Based in Sun Life Investment Management’s Wellesley, Massachusetts office, he will join the team on 2 January, 2018 and report to Candace Shaw, Senior Managing Director and Portfolio Manager, Private Fixed Income, Sun Life Investment Management. 
 
“We are thrilled to welcome Sam Tillinghast to Sun Life Investment Management,” says Shaw. “Not only does Tillinghast have over 30 years’ experience in private credit, his leadership experience in building a business from the ground up enhances our existing team.  With his extensive experience, Tillinghast is well positioned to further drive growth for our US business.”
 
Sun Life Investment Management’s Private Fixed Income Group is a leader in the private debt market in Canada and North America with an asset portfolio in excess of USD23.2 billion (CAD30 billion). The group’s investment philosophy, innovative strategies, team based approach and breadth of experience have enabled it to achieve a leading market position. Seeing an opportunity to provide other institutional investors with access to private credit, which the team has utilized for Sun Life Financial’s own general account for over 40 years, Sun Life Investment Management was established in 2014 and has grown significantly in the time since. 
 
“The appointment of Mr Tillinghast also reinforces our ability to attract top talent,” says Shaw. “While Sun Life Investment Management was established as a third-party asset management business in 2014, our investment team has decades of experience managing investments on behalf of Sun Life.  Our success since 2014 validates our belief that we have a unique value proposition to offer other institutional investors and the industry is taking notice.”
