We view ourselves as investors in businesses, analyzing the long-term cash flow and dividend growth forecast of each company. We also assess their management's ability and inclination to pay and increase dividends.

Dividend Opportunities

One stock at a time

Fund managers build a portfolio of 35-45 stocks ranked according to their dividend yield, dividend growth, strong financials and performance regardless of market conditions.

Risk and reward balance

Historically, companies that pay dividends have less volatile stock prices than those that don't and may help cushion portfolio downside by paying returns in cash.

The dividend-seeking investor in the U.S. market really is presented with a fairly stable opportunity set, and it’s been in sectors that have been offering income streams for quite some time.

Because the fund may allocate relatively more assets to certain industry sectors than others, the fund's performance may be more susceptible to any developments which affect those sectors emphasized by the fund.
