Empire Life Investments Funds win FundGrade A+ Awards
Senior Vice-President & Chief Investment Officer
I am really proud that two investment funds managed by the Empire Life Investments team, the Empire Life Emblem Conservative Portfolio1 and Empire Life Elite Balanced Fund2, were 2014 FundGradeA+ Award winners. On behalf of our Investment Team, I accepted the awards at a wonderful ceremony held at the Art Gallery of Ontario on January 21st. The winning funds were picked based on their FundGrade Rating, which is deemed by Fundata to be an objective score-based calculation that determines the “best of the best”3 for each calendar year.
We worked very hard to be recognized among the highly competitive Canadian segregated and mutual fund markets. And this A+ rating, which is awarded to less than 4% of investment products available, makes the work even more satisfying.
