• OVERVIEW

    • Seeks to maximize total return through a combination of capital appreciation and dividend income.
    • Unlike most dividend strategies that invest in large capitalization stocks, Dividend Focus primarily invests in quality, mid-cap companies that pay growing dividends – not simply high current dividend yields.
    • Quality businesses that pay dividends typically generate more cash than they need for operations.
    • Dividends can provide stability during turbulent markets.
    • A growing dividend can be a good indicator of the health of a company and its potential for future success.
    • Targets a long holding period, typically 5+ years, which allows stocks to compound, resulting in low turnover and a tax efficient strategy.
    • As we celebrate 25 years of service to our shareholders, we’re pleased to provide an insight into 6 Key Lessons Learned along the way that have helped contribute to the Fund’s long-term success.

    Dividends are not guaranteed and a company’s future ability to pay dividends may be limited. See the prospectus for additional important information.
