Strategy differentiators

  • Growers, not just payers—dividend growers and payers have historically had higher returns with less risk than non-dividend paying stocks.

  • Powered by great companies—a quality first mentality removes subpar operators, helping to avoid value traps.

  • Sector neutral approach—helps mitigate risk and relies on stock selection, not sector bets, to drive excess returns.
