Large Cap Value

Approach

This strategy is an actively managed large cap value strategy that relies on fundamental research and analysis to capture the benefits of high-dividend yield and dividend growth. We believe an experienced and specialized research team is critical to generating alpha from stock selection and portfolios built with active risk substantially focused on stock picking deliver a superior performance profile.

Key Benefits

  • Stock selection by career sector analysts, using sector-specific research methodologies, drives alpha
  • Target universe strategically designed to identify stocks with sustainable dividend yield and dividend growth
  • Flexibility to emphasize dividend growth or high current yield supports consistent returns over a variety of market cycles
  • Strong performance relative to benchmark and peers since inception

Principal Risks

The principal risks are generally those attributable to investing in stocks and related derivative instruments. Holdings are subject to market, issuer and other risks, and their values may fluctuate. Market risk is the risk that securities or other instruments may decline in value due to factors affecting the securities markets or particular industries. Issuer risk is the risk that the value of a security or instrument may decline for reasons specific to the issuer, such as changes in its financial condition.
