Investors have an insatiable appetite for yield, but inconveniently we have a market environment where yield is still very scarce. Thankfully we may have a solution to this problem: Global Dynamic Dividend Fund. This is a strategy that has been delivering dividends of circa 5-7% p.a. for the last 8 years. It also provides the best of both worlds – capital appreciation potential with a blend style as the fund has about 60% Value and 40% Growth style AND a potential for premium yield through the unique dividend capture sleeve. Join Ross McSkimming, abrdn’s Senior Investment Specialist who will discuss the capability and explore the reasons why a focus on high dividend and dividend growers could be a favourable strategy in 2022.
