Quality Dividend Focus
Target the Power of Dividends Efficiently
Jeff Sampson, CFA®
Senior Portfolio Manager
The Quality Dividend Focus strategy seeks to build a portfolio of high-quality stocks with strong fundamentals and high dividend yield.
The Quality Dividend Focus strategy seeks to build a diverse, higher-quality portfolio that delivers consistent returns and a high dividend yield while mitigating unintended risks. Our portfolio construction process and active risk management is designed to avoid sector concentrations, unsustainable dividends (or yield traps) and unintended beta exposures.
- Targets compensated equity factors of quality and dividend yield
- Seeks to deliver a high and consistent dividend yield, 1.5-2X the select benchmark
- Creates intentional risk exposures with sector/region-neutral portfolio construction
A Multi-Factor Model with Quality and Dividend Yield
Proprietary factor definitions, smart multi-facor construction and efficient use of risk come together to pursue predictable outcomes.
