The high-dividend advantage
An important potential benefit of dividend investing is that returns are linked to cash payments. Dividend income may provide a distinct advantage when fixed-income yields are low, the outlook for inflation is uncertain and the broader market is volatile.

A portfolio built one dividend-paying stock at a time
Fund managers Walter C. Bean, Daniel Peris and Deborah Bickerstaff bring years of collective experience to building a portfolio of 40-50 stocks ranked according to their dividend yield, dividend growth, strong financials and performance regardless of market conditions.

A balance of risk and reward
Dividend-paying companies:

  • Tend to be solid and well-established
  • Issue stock whose prices have typically been less volatile than non-dividend-paying companies
  • Have historically paid a sizeable portion of their returns in cash and, as a result, may help cushion a portfolio’s downside

International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.
There are no guarantees that dividend-paying stocks will continue to pay dividends. In addition, dividend-paying stocks may not experience the same capital appreciation potential as non-dividend-paying stocks.
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.
Investors should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
