This ETF provides monthly distributions and the opportunity for capital gains through an investment in an actively managed portfolio of large cap global dividend growth companies selected by Brompton, complemented by a proprietary covered call program.

Our PM team first uses a top-down analysis to identify attractive sectors. Rigorous fundamental analysis focuses the portfolio on global Dividend Growth Companies with a market capitalization of at least $10 billion, that have a history (or in the Manager’s view a future likelihood) of dividend growth. The PMs then actively set the level of covered call writing, with the goal of optimizing distributable cash and total returns.
