The International High Dividend Advantage
Overseas companies typically pay out a higher percentage of their net income as dividends. A key advantage of the fund’s strategy is that it seeks out high quality international companies likely to increase their dividends over time.
Experience to Help Maximize the Power of International Dividends
Veteran equity-income managers Walter C. Bean, Daniel Peris and Deborah Bickerstaff bring years of collective investment experience to building a portfolio of 40 to 60 companies diversified across countries, industries and sectors with solid financials, compelling dividend growth characteristics, and strong management.
