Smart Beta

Target Income

Take your search for income a step further.

Low interest rates and bond yields have forced many income seekers towards equities. More companies may be paying dividends, but not all dividends are created equal. More precision is required to reach your goal.                           

Income-focused Smart Beta funds can operate with pinpoint accuracy to identify the high quality companies most likely to keep their dividend promises. 

These days, it’s smarter to ignore the noise and invest for income without emotion. A company’s numbers tell us all we need to know.



Stock market fashions come and go. Quality income stocks don’t.
