Dividend Income Funds Celebrate One-Year with Index Beating Performance

Jul. 29, 2022

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – GQG Partners, one of the world’s leading global equity boutique investment management firms with over $86 billion under management, recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of three dividend income mutual funds: GQG Partners Global Quality Dividend Income Fund (GQFPX), GQG Partners International Quality Dividend Income Fund (GQJIX), and GQG Partners US Quality Dividend Income Fund (GQHIX).

GQG’s three dividend income mutual funds seek to invest in high-quality dividend-paying companies with attractively priced future growth prospects. Despite tumultuous market conditions, the funds have excelled, and outperformed their respective institutional share class benchmarks since their inception on June 30, 2021 (see chart below).

“Not all dividends are created equal, and investors should distinguish between current dividend yield and future dividend income by emphasizing quality first,” said Rajiv Jain, Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Investment Officer of GQG Partners. “Our Quality Divided Income Mutual Funds seek to manage downside risk while providing capital appreciation, dividend income, and attractive returns to long-term investors over a full market cycle.”

GQG Partners’ well-established investment process is guided by its Forward-Looking Quality investment philosophy, which is designed to deliver a high conviction income solution. The company’s dividend funds build upon the company’s success with its other available mutual fund options.

Investments in the United States may result in the Fund being more susceptible to economic, political, regulatory, or other events or conditions affecting issuers within the United States. They may be subject to greater price volatility and risk of loss than a fund holding more geographically diverse investments. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, investments in small- and mid-size companies may be more volatile and less liquid than those of large companies.

Global investments may involve the risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or social, economic, or political instability in other nations.
