These companies have increased their annual dividend for five or more consecutive fiscal years. The portfolio is rebalanced quarterly and reconstituted annually. The Fund invests in sectors, such as telecommunication services, energy, financials, consumer staples, consumer discretionary, healthcare industrials and materials.
