Selection Criteria

Endowus have selected Aberdeen Standard SICAV I - Global Dynamic Dividend Fund for its ability to realise dual objectives: to generate attractive income while offering broad market recognition with little structural bias. The strategy targets a yield payout of 6-7% per year. This payout objective is the highest amongst its peers, and it does so through a core sleeve (95% of NAV) allocating to dividend paying stocks, and a high turnover, dividend capture sleeve participating in special dividend events. Therefore, it has lesser structural biases in its portfolio construction, as would usually exist in a traditional dividend-centric equity strategy. Since the strategy’s inception, it has delivered a market-like total return while its peers have mostly underperformed the global market by a big margin. It has realised a volatility that is slightly above the market.
