Community Involvement

Manulife Asset Management, together with our parent company Manulife, focuses our community efforts in three key areas that are consistent with our business goals and reflect our strong desire to make positive, meaningful differences in the communities in which we do business. Those three areas are:

  • Building stronger communities
  • Promoting health and wellness
  • Harnessing the power of volunteerism

By choosing to focus our charitable giving efforts in these distinct, yet deeply interconnected areas, we are able to maximize the positive impact of our giving strategy. 

Detailed information on Manulife's community involvement is available through our Public Accountability Statement. 

Employee involvement


Many of our employees at Manulife Asset Management are committed to making a difference to the broader community and actively volunteer for various charities and non-profit organizations.

We know charities need more than donations and this is why our commitment extends beyond giving cheques. As a global leader in volunteerism, we aim to empower and enrich the communities around us. Our staff have a diverse range of professional and technical skills, knowledge and experience. Using our time, resources and skills to benefit a worthwhile cause helps us pave the way to a better future.
