Fund overview

Sentry Corporate Bond Class's investment objective is to provide investors with a return that is similar to the return of Sentry Corporate Bond Fund, or another North American and/or international bond fund managed by us (the “Reference Fund”). The investment objective of the Reference Fund is to provide investors with income and the potential for long-term capital appreciation by investing in a portfolio consisting primarily of North American and/or international investment grade and non-investment grade corporate bonds and may also invest in real-return bonds, preferred shares, convertible securities or other fixed-income securities. The fund purchases primarily Canadian equity securities which it sells forward under a series of forward contracts in order to provide the fund with a return that is based on the performance of the Reference Fund. In addition, or in the alternative, the fund may invest directly in fixed-income securities similar to those held by the Reference Fund.
