Dividend strategies are growing in popularity because of many factors in the macro environment: sluggish economic growth, increased volatility, heightened risk aversion and extremely low interest rates on fixed income securities. Many dividend oriented stocks may offer a higher current yield than many fixed income securities. Our strategy not only focuses on companies with high paying dividends, but companies with potential to grow these dividends over time. Dividend strategies may prove to be less volatile during bear markets yet still may provide attractive inflation protection and real total returns in bull markets. Our strategy can fit into your client’s portfolios in several different ways depending on the allocation of assets. If you would discuss specific allocation combinations or how this strategy will fit into your clients portfolio please feel free to contact one of our Portfolio Managers.

What’s different? the ability to raise cash, dollar cost averaging of new assets, direct access to Portfolio Managers and low manager fees.
