TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2010) - At the 16th edition of Canada's premier annual awards event for investment products, Sentry Investments was the proud recipient of two individual fund awards. These awards recognize the superior leadership and tremendous hard work of the individuals who manage these funds:
Sentry Precious Metals Growth Fund, managed by Kevin MacLean and Peter Bures, was acknowledged as the Best Precious Metals Equity Fund.
Sentry Market Neutral L.P., managed by Andrew McCreath and John Kim, was acknowledged as the Best Relative Value Hedge Fund.
For Kevin MacLean, this award comes on the heels of several other accolades, including back-to-back Brendan Wood International TopGun Awards (2009 and 2010), and Canadian Lipper Fund Awards for best risk-adjusted returns over three years in the precious metals equity category (2007, 2008 and 2010) and best risk-adjusted returns over five years in that category (2010).
For Andrew McCreath, the award punctuates a distinguished career focused on delivering superior risk-adjusted returns by adhering to three very simple objectives: maintain lower-than average volatility, preserve capital and make money.
"We are extremely pleased to receive these awards, which underscore our discipline of delivering strong risk-adjusted returns and managing downside risk," said Sandy McIntyre, Senior Vice-President and Chief Investment Officer. "The awards also speak to our commitment to providing advisors and investors with best-in-class investment management and products."
