DIVS is an active take on the dividend-paying market. The fund targets firms that maintain consistent, real (after inflation) dividend growth over a medium term of three to five years. The fund adviser uses fundamental analysis to screen for factors such as consistent return on capital, persistent cash flow, sound balance sheet, value, dividend history and real dividend growth. DIVS typically holds a concentrated portfolio of around 35 globally-listed firms of any market-cap. Holdings are approximately equal-weighted. Note: DIVS converted from a mutual fund structure. On March 29, 2021, Guinness Atkinson was the first provider to formally convert a mutual fund to an ETF, with the conversion of DIVS and sibling fund ADIV.
