Dividend Growth Equity Fund

SEMBX

Objective

The Semper Brentview Dividend Growth Equity Fund (the "Fund") seeks to provide a high level of risk-adjusted current income and capital appreciation.

Fund Overview

Brentview Investment Management, LLC (Brentview) applies a fundamentally driven approach to identifying dividend growth stocks. The Fund will typically invest in equity securities of mid-to-large capitalization companies that exhibit a commitment to sustainable and growing dividends.

Brentview believes that superior long-term returns with lower-than-market risk may be produced by companies that pay and grow their dividend. The aggregate portfolio is constructed to have faster dividend growth, above market gross dividend yield, and lower beta (a measure of risk) versus the primary S&P 500 benchmark.

Additionally, the Fund seeks:

  • A wide range of dividend payers including both recent initiators and companies with longer term histories
  • Quality companies that have healthy balance sheets, consistent execution, and large addressable markets
  • Management teams that realize the importance of dividends to their shareholders

Purchase & Sale of Shares

Shares may be bought or sold on any day the NYSE is open. All transactions are processed at the Fund's next net asset value (NAV), which is calculated at 4 pm ET each business day. Sale proceeds will normally be wired on the following business day.

All classes offer daily purchases and redemptions. 

Minimum Investment

Institutional Class (SEMBX): $1,000,000

The S&P 500 index is a free-float capitalization-weighted index published since 1957 of the prices of 500 large-cap common stocks actively traded in the United States. The stocks included in the S&P 500 are those of large publicly held companies that trade on either of the two largest American stock market exchanges; the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ. The S&P500 is a widely used gauge of large-cap U.S. Equities. One cannot directly invest in an index.

Dividend yield: Annual percentage of return earned by a mutual fund. The yield is determined by dividing the amount of the annual dividends per share by the current net asset value or public offering price.
Beta: A measurement of volatility where 1 is neutral; above 1 is more volatile; and less than 1 is less volatile.
Dividend: A dividend is a portion of a company's profit paid to common and preferred shareholders. Dividends provide an incentive to own stock in stable companies even if they are not experiencing much growth. Companies are not required to pay dividends.
Price/Book: The price per share of a stock divided by its book value (net worth) per share. For a stock portfolio, the ratio is the weighted average price-to-book ratio of the stocks it holds.
Price/Earnings (P/E) Ratio: A stock's price divided by its earnings per share, which indicates how much investors are paying for a company's earning power.
Dividend Payout Ratio: Dividend per share / Diluted earning per share
