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.

Dividend Growers

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

High-Quality Universe

High-quality stocks with consistent dividend growth are often market-leading companies 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 with a lower risk profile than the broader market.
