Sentry Investments earns five Lipper Fund Awards

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2011) - Sentry Investments ("Sentry") is pleased to announce that three mutual funds within the Sentry Group of Funds captured five 2011 Lipper Awards* for delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted returns compared to their peers:

  • Sentry Precious Metals Growth Fund, managed by Kevin MacLean and Peter Bures, earned the award for the best fund over one, three and five years in the precious metals equity category.

  • Sentry Diversified Total Return Fund, managed by Andrew McCreath and John Kim, earned the award for the best fund over three years in the Canadian focused equity category.

  • Sentry Canadian Resource Class, managed by Kevin MacLean, Laura Lau and Mason Granger, earned the award for the best fund over one year in the natural resources equity category.

For Sentry Precious Metals Growth Fund, these awards speak to the consistent performance that Kevin MacLean has delivered. The Fund has now been honoured with seven Lipper Awards since 2007, as well as Best Precious Metals Equity Fund at the 2010 Morningstar Canadian Investment Awards. Kevin also won back-to-back Brendan Wood International TopGun Awards in 2009 and 2010.

For Sentry Diversified Total Return Fund, this validates the Fund's consistently strong results, including #1 ranking in its peer group (Canadian focused equity) over one and three years, and #1 ranking in risk-adjusted returns over three and five years, both as at December 31, 2010.

For Sentry Canadian Resource Class, the Fund has delivered an average annual return of 15%** since inception through a portfolio diversified across Canada's energy, and metals and mining sectors. The Fund offers a low correlation to traditional stocks and bonds, and a hedge against inflation.

These awards are further evidence of our commitment to providing investors the best in investment management.
