Why Invest

An important asset class

CDIV invests in dividend-paying companies in Canada. Investing in dividend-paying companies continues to be an important contributor to total returns and a way to generate income. As investors continue to look for sustainable sources of income in a low interest rate environment, incorporating dividend-payers could be an appropriate portfolio addition.

Efficient investment management

CDIV’s efficient quantitative approach focuses on companies that pay a consistent and growing dividend over time – not just the highest dividend payers in the market. Their approach screens out companies across market capitalizations, sectors and industries. The portfolio managers also optimize the holding’s weights in the portfolio through their research. As a result, CDIV portfolio allocations to different companies will often look very different than the broad Canadian stock indices. This combination of portfolio management techniques also helps to keep costs lower.
