Investment Objectives

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


This Strategy provides the following potential benefits:

Starting Universe:

  • The S&P 500 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.

Sector and Stock Diversification:

  • Equal weighting at the stock and sector level provides diversification while avoiding sector biases.


  • 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%.
