Investment Strategy:

KDIV gives investors access to the S&P Dividend Aristocrats methodology applied to the Pan Asia region, one of the fastest-growing areas in the world. The S&P Pan Asia Dividend Aristocrats Index includes companies from China, Japan, Australia, and other Asian countries, that have paid and increased their dividends over a sustained period of time. Over the long term, companies with a strong track record of paying and growing dividends may outperform the broad market on a risk-adjusted basis.

Why Dividend Growth?

  • As a decade of low-interest rates ends, investors are increasingly searching for growth and income in their portfolios. Simultaneously, as global equity market volatility increases, investors may want defensive strategies to weather market turbulence.
  • Adding dividend growers to an investment portfolio may result in lower volatility, compounded growth on dividend reinvestment, and reduced drawdown in declining markets.
  • Strong dividend growth is generally a positive signal from company insiders of confidence in the future of the business, as well as a pro-shareholder orientation.

Why Pan Asia Region?

  • The International Monetary Fund forecasts GDP growth in the Asia Pacific region to be 4.9% in 2022 and 5.1% in 2023.1
  • While much of the western world is actively tightening monetary policy, major Asian central banks have remained more accommodative.
  • From 2009 to 2021, Asia Dividend Aristocrats averaged a higher yield than the S&P Pan Asia Broad Market Index (BMI).1

30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
