Sun Life Financial

Sun Life Financial Inc. is an international financial services company that provides a wide range of assistance to clients that includes but is not limited to insurance, mutual funds, and pensions. It has significantly grown its assets under management compared to industry peers and has a strong earnings outlook.


Good Businesses At Attractive Valuations

We believe the best businesses acquired at prices that are reasonable in relation to what we expect to receive in return make the best investments. Both OpenText and CVS Healthcare are businesses that have a proven track record of growing earnings, and we believe they will continue to grow over the long term. The stock prices for both companies have been trending lower as the business’ outlooks look weaker over the short term. We believe that both businesses will be making more money in the future, paying higher dividends in the future, making them wonderful investment opportunities today.


Good Returns With Less Volatility

Over the long term, the performance of the Pool has been good while minimizing the downside risks of investing. The markets have been reaching all-time highs, without business fundamentals supporting such enthusiasm. We will continue to provide good long-term returns that clients can count on by focusing on the long-term opportunities of the businesses, the prices we pay, and being aware of the potential downside risks.
