Manulife Investment Management and Trust Corporation recently partnered with COL Financial Group Inc., to provide COL clients access to its unit investment trust funds covering onshore and offshore investment strategies and diverse asset classes like Real Estate Investment Trusts, preferred securities, equities and fixed income.

“Our partnership with COL further expands our reach in helping more Filipinos achieve broader diversification in terms of asset classes and geographies as they build and grow their wealth portfolio,” Aira Gaspar, president and chief executive officer of Manulife Investment Management Philippines, said.
