Investment Strategies

  • The sub-advisor, Ziegler Capital Management, LLC (“Ziegler”), employs a bottom up security selection process which seeks to invest in dividend paying stocks that provide attractive fundamental value and demonstrate high quality earnings growth relative to their sector peers.
  • Ziegler selects the dividend yielding stocks from the universe of US stocks with market capitalizations over $1 billion and removes all companies that do not pay a dividend. Ziegler then uses additional screens to identify dividend paying stocks with characteristics such as strong cash flows, high earnings quality, and growth potential among others. Stocks are ranked within GICS (Global Industry Classifications Standards) by dividend yield with preference generally given to stocks with yields that exceed the average of its industry sector.
  • Zeigler uses qualitative fundamental analysis as well as additional earnings and dividend quality screens to remove candidates that do not appear to have the cash flow to support the dividend over the long term.
  • Zeigler generally targets a Fund dividend yield that is approximately 50% higher than that of the Russell 1000 Value benchmark before trading fees and expenses, but market conditions may cause the Fund’s yield advantage to deviate from the 50% target.
