Manulife Dividend Income Fund

Managed by the Manulife Value Equity Team all companies are viewed under the same fundamental proprietary lens, using a scalable and repeatable process driven by the team's fundamental beliefs unchanged since the team's founding in 1996.

The team's focus is on creating a high returning conglomerate portfolio consisting of diversified businesses to ensure that revenue and earnings come from many different sources. As a result, no single event will have a large negative impact on the portfolio.

The fund aims to provide investors with a portfolio of Canadian and U.S. dividend paying diversified businesses, which in aggregate have high and stable profitability, minimal financial leverage and at an attractive valuation.

The outcome is a portfolio of securities that together create value at a pace faster than the benchmark. The fund is ideal for clients looking for long term growth and tax efficient monthly income.
