Sun Life Global Investments enhances its currency hedged series offering

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.
