Price/Earnings Ratio - Price-to-earnings (P/E) is the ratio of the market price of a firm’s common stock to its current (or predicted) earnings per share. Price/Book Ratio - Price-to-book value (P/B) is a ratio used to compare a stock's market value with its book value. It is calculated by dividing the current closing price of the stock by the latest quarter’s book value (assets minus liabilities).

Price/Book Ratio - Price-to-book value (P/B) is a ratio used to compare a stock's market value with its book value. It is calculated by dividing the current closing price of the stock by the latest quarter’s book value (assets minus liabilities).

Return on Equity is the percentage a company earns on its total equity for the time period listed. The calculation is net income divided by end-of-year net worth. The resulting figure is multiplied by 100.

Weighted Avg Market Cap - Weighted average market cap is the average market capitalization of corporations in a fund or index, weighted by the percentage of the holding in the fund or index.

Earnings per share (EPS) growth is a figure that represents the annualized rate of net-income-per-share growth over the trailing five-year period for the stocks held by a portfolio.

Investment Philosophy

We believe a focus on sustainable dividends is a primary driver of stock performance, reflecting the power evidence that dividends, and the reinvestment of dividends, represent one of the dominant sources of long-term real returns in markets across the world.
  • Focus on Dividends

    Our strict yield discipline seeks to ensure that every stock, and the portfolio as a whole, compounds at a higher yield than that of the market.
  • Sustainability of Dividend Payments

    We look to enhance this tailwind by seeking companies with underlying cash flows that we believe are sustainable and have the ability to suffer without threatening the dividend.
  • Valuation Overlay

    We aim to enhance this further still by capturing a valuation margin of safety.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. No investment strategy or risk management technique can guarantee returns or eliminate risk in any market environment.

The performance shown represents the performance of the BNYM Newton Global Equity Income ADR Composite.

Net returns assume the reinvestment of dividends. Through September 30, 2021, net of fees performance is shown using a fee of 3%, which is the historical industry standard highest fee in the wrap account industry. As of October 1, 2021, net of fees performance is shown using a fee of 1.50%, which is the annual advisory fee for the strategy. “Pure” gross-of-fees returns are supplemental to net-of-fees returns and do not reflect the deduction of wrap fee portfolio program fees which would reduce returns. The information shown is supplemental to a fully compliant GIPS presentation that can be found at the end of this presentation along with other important disclosures. Returns for less than one year are not annualized.

The benchmark for the strategy is the MSCI World Index. The Index captures large and mid-cap representation across 23 Developed Markets (DM) countries. With 1,513 constituents, the index covers approximately 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalization in each country. Index returns are calculated as net return indicating that this series approximates the minimum possible dividend reinvestment. The dividend is reinvested after deduction of withholding tax, applying the rate applicable to non-resident individuals who do not benefit from double taxation treaties. MSCI uses withholding tax rates applicable to Luxembourg holding companies. While the MSCI World Index does not contain any ADRs, the BNYM Newton Global Equity Income ADR wrap fee portfolios are primarily composed of ADRs along with U.S. equities and DTCC-eligible securities of global companies. An investor cannot invest directly in any index.

        Main Risks

        All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. Equities are subject to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks to varying degrees. Small and midsized company stocks tend to be more volatile and less liquid than larger company stocks as these companies are less established and have more volatile earnings histories. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities involves special risks, including changes in currency exchange rates, political, economic, and social instability, limited company information, differing auditing and legal standards, and less market liquidity. These risks generally are greater with emerging market countries. American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) do not eliminate the currency and economic risks for the underlying shares in another country. ADRs are subject to many of the same risks as the foreign securities to which they relate.

        Standard deviation - It is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.

        Alpha - It is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

        Beta - It is a measure of a security's or portfolio's volatility, or systematic risk.

        R-Squared - It is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund's or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

        Sharpe Ratio - It is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk.

        Tracking Error - is a measure of the volatility of excess returns relative to a benchmark.

        Information Ratio - is a geometric measure of risk-adjusted performance. The Information Ratio is a version of the Sharpe Ratio, but unlike the Sharpe Ratio, the benchmark does not have to be the risk-free return.
