C. Troy Shaver, Jr.
President & Chief Executive Officer
We believe: Good companies pay dividends. Great companies grow dividends. In selecting investments, the Fund employs a proprietary 10/10 test—designed to identify companies that increase their dividend by 10% per year on average, for 10 years in a row.1
Unlike other strategies that seek to enhance yield through bonds or dividend-paying value stocks, our Fund invests in rising dividend stocks and Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)—which can provide investors with rising income, inflation protection and portfolio diversification.
The Fund’s prudent approach offers investors the potential for rising income, and competitive total returns with lower volatility. Sub-advised by Dividend Assets Capital, we believe this focus on income through quality could make this Fund a core portfolio holding for many investors.
1. Dividends are not guaranteed and a company’s future ability to pay dividends may be limited.
