Inflation Risk Does Not Bother Sentinel PM

News summary by MFWire's editors

A fund does not have to measure its assets in the billions to get the attention of the WSJ Fund Track, nor does its portfolio manager need to be a household name. Monday's column highlights the inflationary views (or the lack thereof) of Jason Doiron, co-manager of the $105 million Sentinel Conservative Allocation Fund (SECMX).

Doiron, who is the only PM interviewed, tells the paper that inflation is unlikely to rise in the next few years. His reasons include a decrease in the velocity of money (which lowers the effective supply) and a large amount of unused manufacturing capacity. He also says TIPs may hold a hidden risk -- the lack of liquidity -- even as they serve as an inflation hedge.

"The crisis left very fresh memories and a lot of panic in investors, and rightfully so," he told the paper. "If you're buying financial products designed to protect you from a rising inflationary environment, it might not be the best investment in the short term."
