Why Equity Income?

Equity Income is an actively managed fund that seeks to invest in higher-quality companies temporarily trading at a discount to their fair market value.

  1. Focuses on High Quality – seeks to invest in high-quality, sustainable companies when they are temporarily out of favor
  2. Seeks Lower Volatility & Downside Mitigation – aims at providing a smoother ride by balancing equity exposure with lower volatility and downside mitigation
  3. Aims at Providing Sustainable Income – all holdings must pay dividends and the portfolio targets a yield greater than the S&P 500


Investing in High-Quality, Undervalued Securities


Equity Income focuses on identifying high-quality businesses and deselecting low-quality companies. This aims to reduce exposure to value traps that can erode long-term performance.

The team also tactically invests in convertible securities in an effort to enhance the overall risk/return profile of the portfolio.
