Investment Strategy:

KSCD is benchmarked to the Russell 2000 Dividend Select Equal Weight Index, which takes a smart beta1 approach to investing in US Small Cap companies. The strategy seeks to measure the performance of US companies that have successfully increased their dividend payments over a period of ten years. The Index is designed to provide a benchmark for investors looking to capture a concentrated portfolio of constituents demonstrating increased dividends and positive momentum.

KSCD Provides:

  • Exposure to firms with historically reliable dividend growth which have a strong record of stable cash flows, healthy balance sheets and durable business models2
  • Dividend growth strategies can potentially improve performance in down market environments2
  • Smart beta strategy which seeks to deliver cost effective alpha3

1. Smart beta is an investment style where a manager follows an index designed to take advantage of perceived systematic biases or inefficiencies in the market.
2. “Harnessing the Long-Term Potential of Dividend Growth.” FTSE Russell, Nov. 2018.
3. Alpha is the active return on an investment, gauges the performance of an investment against a market index or benchmark which is considered to represent the market's movement as a whole.

30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
