Investment Philosophy

A company’s dividend policy is tangible evidence of management’s confidence in future earnings growth.

The payment of a meaningful dividend, along with the expectation that it will be increased year after year, imposes an important discipline on management which makes them better allocators of shareholders’ capital and promotes more consistent earnings growth over time.
