Pacific Life Renames Its Mutual Funds to Pacific Funds

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - Effective December 31, 2014, the mutual funds affiliate of Pacific Life Insurance Company, Pacific Life Funds, has been renamed Pacific Funds. Pacific Funds will continue to leverage the robust brand recognition of Pacific Life through the continued use of the iconic whale logo. The renaming is an opportunity to distinguish the mutual funds business as its own distinctive product line.

Also effective December 31, 2014, individual funds have been renamed. The changes include replacing the "PL" in each retail fund with "Pacific Funds." All else at Pacific Funds remains the same, including the investment goals and strategies of its funds, CUSIPs, and Pacific Funds' commitment to the needs of shareholders and financial professionals.

"We couldn't be more pleased with our growth over recent years," says Chris van Mierlo, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of sales for Pacific Life's Retirement Solutions Division. "Pacific Funds has been recognized for three key qualities: mutual funds based on the principles of diversification and income generation; knowledgeable and experienced money managers; and high-quality service standards. While the name has changed, our focus on holding fast to those three pillars of our brand remains steadfast."
