TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 07, 2017) - Sentry Investments ("Sentry") is pleased to announce that effective immediately, portfolio manager Jon Case has been named the sole manager of Sentry Canadian Resource Class (the "Fund").
"Jon has been a key contributor to Sentry's resource team over the past five years," said Kevin MacLean, Senior Vice-President and Senior Portfolio Manager. "He has proven investment capability and exceptional knowledge in both the metals and mining sector, and the broader resource sector. I have every confidence that Jon is ready to take on even greater responsibility within the team."
As part of the Fund leadership change, Kevin MacLean will no longer be a listed portfolio manager on the Fund. He will, however, continue as the lead manager for Sentry Precious Metals Fund. As the head of Sentry's resource team, Kevin will also continue to work closely with Jon and the other members of the resource team, and provide leadership within Sentry's broader investment team.
Philip Yuzpe, President and Chief Executive Officer noted, "This is a well-deserved opportunity for Jon. I am very pleased that he is taking the next step in his career here with us, and that Kevin will be able to continue offering the insight and leadership that remain so valuable to our organization."
