UK- Credit Suisse Asset Management is rebranding the three Sun Life Financial Asset Management companies it acquired last December.

From now on, the three subsidiaries- the pooled pension fund business, the institutional business and the property and retail fund business will go by the Credit Suisse name.

The acquisition of the Sun Life Financial of Canada subsidiaries at the end of last year added £11bn in assets under management and Credit Suisse says this boosted resources to all UK domestic asset classes.

Says Joe Gallagher, CEO of Credit Suisse Europe: “the combined firm gives CSAM a stronger platforrm in the UK.”
