TORONTO, Aug. 5, 2016 /CNW/ - Sun Life Global Investments is enhancing
its currency hedged series offering with the launch of Series FH, OH
and IH on Sun Life MFS U.S. Growth Fund and Sun Life MFS U.S. Value
Fund. Available today, the hedged series will provide flexibility for
Canadian investors in the named U.S. Equity Funds to invest in the U.S.
equity market while hedging their exposure to U.S. currency.
Protecting clients against adverse currency movements is an important
component to the successful management of their portfolios. Sun Life
Global Investments' currency hedged series can help mitigate currency
volatility caused by changes in the CAD / U.S. exchange rate.
"Over recent years the Canadian dollar has been falling against the U.S.
dollar and Canadian investors have benefited from being unhedged," said
Sadiq S. Adatia, Chief Investment Officer, Sun Life Global Investments.
"However, with the gains the Canadian dollar has made recently, a
hedging strategy may become a more attractive approach for investors."
The new hedged options, FH, OH and IH will be added to the current AH
option and accompany each of the Fund's non-hedged series counterparts.
