High Dividend

Investment Focus

High Dividend is a highly flexible but focused strategy oriented toward stocks with growing and/or above average dividends trading at below peer group valuations. We attempt to diversify holdings across a minimum of four different sectors.

All positions go through a rigorous screening process for attractive valuations, free cash flow and positive technical patterns. Downside risk is managed predominantly through diversification, selection, position sizing and trend following.

Over a complete business cycle (typically 5 years), it is the objective of High Dividend to produce total returns from the combination of capital appreciation and regular dividend income but with substantially reduced risk of capital loss and lower volatility than the MSCI All Country World Stock Index.

Target Account Types:

Appropriate for all account types

Worldwide Sectors

Investment Focus

The primary objective of the Worldwide Sectors strategy is to produce growth oriented returns over a complete business cycle (typically 5 years) using individual stocks and ETFs with lower correlation to the MSCI World Stock index and reduced risk of significant capital loss.

Worldwide Sectors will produce its best returns in up trending market environments in which there is broad participation. This strategy overweights and underweights various sectors based on fundamental analysis combined with relative strength analysis.

Portfolio risk is managed through net exposure, selection and position size using longer term parameters. Worldwide Sectors accepts periodic volatility as long as the primary trends are favorable but will move to a defensive position during bear markets.
