Behind Our Strategies

  • Susie Wang

    “Getting the most of a dividend-driven investment strategy requires looking beyond stocks with the highest yields, which could be a value trap.   Additionally, dividend cuts are rarely a one-time phenomenon; dividend increase with sustainable power and long-term record are key.”

    Susie Wang
    Chief Investment Officer
  • Tom Cameron

    "The market goes up and down over time.  Our clients’ dividends are going up every single year.  We make sure our clients continue to feel comfortable in a changing world."

    Tom Cameron
    Retired Chairman
  • Jim Haley

    "A company must grow its dividend consistently for a decade to be considered for our investment portfolios an must continue to raise its dividend to remain in our investible universe.Long-term performance. Increasing value. Income generation. That's the three-dimensional wealth management."

    Jim Haley
    Managing Director, Private Client Group
  • Troy Shaver
     

    "We believe that dividends are the best indicator of the future price performance of a stock. Dividends are paid when there are attractive earnings. When dividends are paid consistently and at an increasing rate over the long-term, this is likely to exert a positive movement of price performance."
