Description
The investment seeks income and long-term capital appreciation. The fund pursues its investment objective by investing primarily in high dividend yielding common stocks with dividend growth potential. Its security selection process involves screening and prioritizing stocks based on appropriate quantitative statistics. Those companies that rank as highly attractive in the screening process are closely scrutinized for inclusion in the portfolio using bottom-up fundamental proprietary research. The fund may use derivative contracts, such as forward contracts, to manage or hedge the fund's currency exposure.
The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Dow Jones U.S. Dividend 100™Index. The fund invests at least 90% of its net assets in stocks that are included in the index. The index is designed to measure the performance of high dividend yielding stocks issued by U.S. companies that have a record of consistently paying dividends, selected for fundamental strength relative to their peers, based on financial ratios.
The investment seeks to provide an above-average level of current income and reasonable long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests mainly in common stocks of mid-size and large companies whose stocks typically pay above-average levels of dividend income and are, in the opinion of the purchasing advisor, undervalued relative to other such stocks. In addition, the advisors generally look for companies that they believe are committed to paying dividends consistently. Under normal circumstances, it will invest at least 80% of its assets in equity securities. The fund uses multiple investment advisors.

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
