In an article published in the Globe and Mail today, Renato Anzovino, CFA, lead Portfolio Manager of the Heward Canadian Dividend Growth Fund, spoke with John Heinzl about five high-quality Canadian stocks in the Fund that have a history of paying consistently increasing dividends that we believe will continue to provide excellent risk-adjusted returns for investors.

Despite uncertainty in the Canadian marketplace, Mr. Anzovino and the team continue to find opportunities by focusing on dividend growth companies that demonstrate experienced management teams, compelling valuations, strong fundamentals and solid track records of earnings visibility and predictability. These companies have a clear outlook that is confirmed by recent dividend increases.

Market volatility allows Renato and team to be patient and wait for opportunities to add to our core position. As of October 31st, 2017, the Fund produced a one-year return of 14.69% compared to 11.48% for the index and a five-year return of 11.31% versus 8.41%.
