TORONTO, Jan 28 (Reuters) - Sun Life Financial Inc will buy New York-based Ryan Labs Asset Management in a deal the Canadian insurer hopes will help it win more business with U.S. pension funds and other institutional investors, Sun Life said on Wednesday.
Toronto-based Sun Life did not disclose the value of the deal for Ryan Labs, which specializes in liability driven investing and total return fixed-income strategies. It said the acquisition would not be material to its results.
The companies said Ryan Labs has about $5.1 billion in assets under management for clients across the United States.
