International Strategic Value Dividend ADR SMA

Separately Managed Accounts .



A composite of portfolios investing in foreign stocks that management believes will provide high yield, reasonable dividend growth and lower volatility in falling equity market environments along with potential participation in rising markets. Eligible portfolios are managed with wide latitude to choose the sectors and securities to fulfill the mandate. Portfolios may invest in less developed or emerging markets that generally entail greater political, economic, market, tax, credit and other risks, and may have greater price volatility than securities issued or traded in developed markets. Within eligible portfolios, securities are selected based on a fundamental assessment of their financial strength, dividend yields, dividend growth rates and performance during periods of market weakness.
