Equity Strategies

Dana’s investment philosophy and process is consistent across all equity strategies. We adhere to a relative valuation investment philosophy, which simply means that we believe superior returns are produced by identifying companies whose attractive growth prospects are undervalued relative to their peers. By buying attractively ranked stocks, we seek to add value over time. Our risk-controlled portfolio construction is a differentiating factor in protecting our clients’ assets. Risk controls compel us to look
down before we look up. We invite you to explore our Equity Strategies and Wealth Management services.

Concentrated Dividend Strategy

The Dana Concentrated Dividend Equity Strategy seeks to hold a diversified portfolio of 25 to 35 dividend paying stocks. Our investment process incorporates a wide spectrum of valuation, growth, and profitability metrics to help identify securities that possess attractive characteristics relative to their peers. Risk controls and manager conviction play an important role throughout the entire portfolio construction process, as we look to add value with our disciplined fundamental stock selection. Returns are emphasized through a high active share, concentrated portfolio approach while relative risk is minimized through a sector and factor aware portfolio construction process. Overtime, the portfolio’s dividend yield should be noticeably higher than the Russell 1000 Value benchmark.
