What is the Calibrated Dividend Growth Fund ?

The Fund seeks to deliver total return by investing primarily in stocks of large U.S. companies that have a history of increasing their dividends.

HIGH-QUALITY UNIVERSE

Companies with consistent dividend growth are often market leaders with stable business models, strong balance sheets, and management teams committed to shareholders.

LOWER RISK PROFILE

Focusing on U.S. companies that have consistently grown their dividends often provides investors with an equity portfolio that has a lower risk profile than the broader market.

GROWTH AND RISING INCOME

A portfolio of consistent dividend growers may provide investors with long-term growth and rising income. Many of these companies have grown their dividends much faster than inflation.
