TORONTO: Sentry Investments (“Sentry”) is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as Canada’s Best Equity Fund Family by Lipper.1 The Lipper Fund Awards program recognizes fund families with high average scores for all funds within a particular asset class or overall.
“This award provides third-party validation of why investment advisors are choosing Sentry Funds. To be recognized as having the best group of equity mutual funds above other esteemed investment managers in the Canadian marketplace is an incredible accomplishment. We’re extremely proud and honoured,” said John Driscoll, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sentry Investments.
Sandy McIntyre, President and Chief Investment Officer of Sentry Investments, added the following, “Providing better risk-adjusted returns is the goal of our common investment process. We’ve assembled a group of industry-leading portfolio managers and have provided them with the freedom to manage independently. The Best Equity Fund Family award is a direct result of a shared index-agnostic investment philosophy that has delivered superior returns with lower volatility.”
From Sentry’s award-winning equity fund family, three mutual funds also received individual recognition. They captured five 2011 Lipper Awards1 for delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted returns compared to their peers:
