Great-West Life chooses Sentry as fund sub-advisor

The independent asset manager is expected to provide superior risk-adjusted returns

Sentry Investments has entered into an agreement with Great-West Life to sub-advise its Global Income (Sentry) Fund.

The fund joins Great-West Life’s lineup, which includes both fund-of-fund and stand-alone, multi-manager strategies that aim mainly for capital preservation and income generation.

“We are looking forward to working with Great-West Life, a leading insurance provider that has been serving the financial security needs of Canadians for 125 years,” said Gaelen Morphet, chief investment officer at Sentry Investments. "Combining our wealth management skills with Great-West Life's high-quality segregated fund contracts will help provide Canadians with the investment solutions they require as they look for income-producing alternatives."

With the new agreement, investors with Great-West Life, London Life, and Canada Life can see Sentry’s brand of active investing along with its history of delivering superior risk-adjusted returns to clients.

“We consider Sentry to be one of the top fund managers in Canada,” said George Turpie, senior vice-president, investment products, wealth management for Great-West Life. “The Sentry Global Income Fund will be a valuable addition to our fund line-up, which will continue providing Canadian investors with access to global high-quality fixed-income and equity securities.”
