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.
