CONCENTRATED PORTFOLIO OF COMPANIES COMMITTED TO REWARDING SHAREHOLDERS THROUGH SUSTAINABLE AND GROWING DIVIDENDS, TARGETING A 10% GROWTH RATE IN DIVIDENDS OVER THE LONG-TERM.
The Blue Current International Dividend Growth Strategy invests in a diverse portfolio (30-35 stocks) of dividend-paying securities domiciled in developed-markets that are committed to rewarding shareholders through dividend growth and share buybacks. We believe that over the long-term, dividend growth and quality investing leads to above-average compounded returns.
We select securities from the MSCI World-Ex US universe. We do not invest in emerging markets but seek to exploit those growth trends through investments in companies domiciled in developed markets. Each portfolio company will be committed to long-term dividend growth and we seek to have exposure to a variety of currencies. No country or sector will represent more than 30% of the portfolio.
We have a value-based approach that identifies businesses with industry leading fundamentals including return on capital, balance sheet quality, free cash flow generation and friendly shareholder governance policies that reward investors through the cycle. We seek to invest in these businesses when there is an identifiable catalyst capable of closing the price discount to our calculated intrinsic value.
