A One Decision Fund...
The Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund is designed to provide total returns consisting of current income and capital growth through investment in a diversified portfolio of debt (bonds) and equity (stocks) securities from both domestic and foreign issuers.
…that offers peace of mind with a sound investment objective.
For many people, the Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund provides a sensible base for mutual fund investing, offering access to a broad portfolio of different investment vehicles that can benefit from every kind of market condition. While that versatility is what makes it popular among a range of individual investors, the Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund is particularly attractive to first-time mutual fund buyers who can enjoy the relative safety of less volatile fixed income securities, without sacrificing the long term growth potential of an equity fund.
Provides strength through investment diversification.
With the Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund, you have exposure to all the major asset classes in one fund. Stocks give you higher growth potential while cash and bonds provide greater stability and generate income. Cash is a solid "holding" during volatile times when interest rates are high.
By spreading your single investment across several asset classes, you have more protection than if you were to invest solely in bonds, or only in equities; and, a better potential return than if you held your savings in cash alone. A "down" year in one asset class is often offset by another portion of your portfolio that is performing better.
In reality, the Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund mirrors the diversification that you could achieve by holding a variety of mutual funds or a cross-section of individual investments.
The Sun Life Prosperity Balanced Fund – a “one-decision” fund

Investing for the long-term.
When you invest in a mutual fund, you are investing in a diversified portfolio of securities that normally fluctuate in value. To obtain the best results, they should generally be regarded as long-term investments, which means they should be held for five years or more.
The securities markets in which mutual funds invest tend to rise and fall over the short-term, as will the value of your investment. Your ability to withstand short-term volatility, especially on the down-side, will generally result in greater returns over the long-term. When the value of your investments decrease, and it will from time to time, be patient.
Let your investments work for you.
