Fund Overview

Investment Objective

  • Seeks to provide a combination of current cash flow and long term capital growth primarily through investment in a diversified portfolio of dividend paying U.S. equity securities.
  • Fiera U.S. Dividend Class pursues the investment objective through direct investment primarily in U.S. equity securities, including American depositary receipts.

Investment Strategy

  • The Portfolio Manager employs a systematic investment approach that exploits the persistent valuation anomaly in developed equity markets where companies that are less sensitive to broad market index (low systematic risk) tend to outperform on a risk adjusted basis companies that are highly sensitive to broad market index (high systematic risk).
  • The Fund will be diversified accross high conviction stocks and will focus on identifying companies that exhibit a combination of low systematic risk and superior dividend payout.
  • Emphasis is put on low systematic risk names, characterized by a combination of lower volatility and lower correlation to broad US market indices.

Reasons to own the fund

  • Investors who want exposure to a U.S. equity fund focused on dividend paying stocks.
  • Investors seeking long term capital growth from their investment and are comfortable with the risks associated with equity investments.
