  1. MANULIFE ??? Great expertise here! I transferred my defined benefit pension to them 12 years ago, and I've been losing ever since. I am 70 years of age, and each year I seem to be losing ground. I have not heard from my broker since a year and a half. I receive my statement every 6 months, and I am so disgusted each statement. Oh, and this is July 23: I have not gotten my statement for the first half of this year. I shudder to think what my locked in investments will bring to me.
