Sentry Select Growth and Income Fund: Sentry Select Growth and Income Fund’s investment objective is to seek a balance of current income and long-term capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio of dividend-paying and/or distribution-paying North American equity and income securities, including income trusts, common and preferred shares and, to a lesser extent, interest-bearing securities, such as bonds, bills or bankers acceptances. The Fund intends to pay regular, tax-efficient monthly distributions, initially targeted at 8% per annum.
The Fund is managed by Michael Simpson, Vice-President and Senior Portfolio Manager and Sandy McIntyre, Senior Vice-President and Chief Investment Officer. “Equities are one of the unique asset classes that generate income growth and capital appreciation over time,” said Sandy McIntyre. “As one of the best inflation hedges available, equities are an indispensable asset class for investors at every stage of life.”
Series I units: Sentry Select is also pleased to announce the launch of Series I units, generally available for institutional investors and large single purchase orders.
Sentry Select Capital Corp.: Sentry Select Capital Corp. is a Canadian wealth management company that manages over $6 billion in assets as of June 30, 2008.
