Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks investment results that replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the performance of the S-Network® Emerging Sector Dividend Dogs Index (the“Index”).

Strategy

This Strategy provides the following potential benefits:

Starting Universe:

  • MSCI EM TR Net Index

High Conviction Tilt Towards Income:

  • Screening is isolated at the sector level, providing high dividend exposure by selecting the five highest yielding securities in each of the 10 GICS sectors that make up the S-Network Emerging Markets Index (excluding the real estate sector).

Sector and Stock Diversification:

  • Equally weighting at the stock and sector level provides diversification while avoiding sector biases.
  • Country representation is capped at five eligible securities per country.

Rebalance/Reconstitution:

  • Annual reconstitution - Simple one step screening to identify 5 highest yielding securities (based on regular cash dividends) in each of the 10 Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sectors as of last trading day of November. The annual reconstitution date is the third Friday in December.
  • Rebalanced Quarterly based on data from 2nd Friday of last month of calendar quarter (implemented on 3rd Friday) - Equal Sector (10%), Equal Security (2%) weight & Country Cap of 10%.
