The Global High Dividend strategy provides investors with a way to participate in the upside potential of global equities while at the same time generating current income and benefiting from greater than average downside protection, given dividend yield support. We invest primarily in U.S. and international companies that trade on global exchanges. While the global markets provide considerable upside potential, they are also exposed to additional political and currency risk. We believe the combination of low P/E, high dividend yield and dividend growth should mitigate this risk and reduce the overall volatility of the portfolio.
We select global stocks that combine low P/E discipline, high dividend yields and strong dividend growth.
- The Global High Dividend ODR portfolio invests in undervalued, US and International equities with above average earnings growth and dividend yields (goal of 4%+).
- This concentrated portfolio of 45-55 stocks is diversified across all sectors of the market.
The Schafer Cullen investment team relies heavily on fundamental research as part of its investment selection process.
