We believe that WBIY’s multi-factor, actively rebalanced process is the most advanced Smart Beta approach in the marketplace today – one that is designed to help solve an investor’s need for high current income, inflation protection, and consistent capital growth. So how does WBIY work?
Watch the video to find out.
WBIY is designed to track the Solactive Power Factor High Dividend Index. The Index screens for securities based on three fundamental value characteristics, or “Power Factors”:
The goal of the Solactive Power Factor High Dividend Index and WBIY product design is to improve performance through superior security selection. Quarterly rebalancing provides a more active approach than you would find in similar offerings. The process identifies the “Top 50” highest dividend-yielding U.S. common stocks that also have high quality fundamentals.
The performance data quoted represents past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For most recent month-end performance, please click here.
An investment in the Funds is subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the Advisor’s investment strategy or quantitative models used in the investment strategy will be successful. To the extent that a Fund invests in dividend-paying equities, if stocks held by the Fund reduce or stop paying dividends, the Funds’ ability to generate income may be affected. Small and medium capitalization companies may involve greater volatility and risk than investing in larger and more established companies. Foreign and emerging market securities carry additional risks such as currency fluctuation, economic or financial instability, lack of timely or reliable financial information, or unfavorable political or legal developments.
The Fund invests in high yielding stocks, which may be speculative, higher risk investments. It is possible these companies could pay out more than they can support and may reduce or stop paying dividends at any time, which could have a material adverse effect on the companies’ stock price and the Fund’s performance.
WBIY is not actively managed and the Sub-Advisor does not attempt to take defensive positions in declining markets. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund does not utilize an investing strategy that seeks returns in excess of its Underlying Index.
For a full list of investment risks associated with the funds, including but not limited to market risk, portfolio turnover risk, securities business risk, mortgage-backed securities risk, master limited partnership risk, real estate investment trust risk, ETF risk, and trading price risk, please read the prospectus.
