Advantus SDI investment strategy marks three year anniversary

Advantus Capital Management’s Strategic Dividend Income (SDI) investment strategy has yielded more than five per cent since its launch three years ago.

The strategy, which is aimed at institutional investors seeking higher stock dividends and lower volatility in equities, invests in income-producing securities including real estate investment trusts (REITs), master limited partnerships, utilities and other infrastructure securities.
 
The diversified allocation, experienced team and active portfolio management process add value to balance income, volatility and inflation protection.
 
“The SDI strategy has performed well, providing investors with a high dividend yield, strong dividend growth and lower volatility than the broader equity market,” says Chris Sebald, president, Advantus Capital Management. “The three-year track record provides evidence that investors can earn very strong dividends without sacrificing total return.”
 
The composite dividend yield from the SDI strategy at the three-year mark was 5.2 per cent, and Advantus believes the continued outlook for strong dividends is positive. The SDI portfolio management team screens for stocks with high dividend yields and dividend growth. The strategy provides a mix of both stability and income.
