The Small Cap Dividend portfolio is a portfolio designed to systematically deliver return and risk characteristics of small cap high dividend stocks within the US equity market. The portfolio is implemented using a rules-based approach and offered at a relatively low cost.

Research

A factor-based approach to portfolio construction is grounded in academic research. The goal is to achieve an alternative risk-return profile, which is more attractive than a simple capitalization-weighted index such as the Russell 2000. IB Asset Management has undertaken research and back-testing to decide on the fundamental factors and rules used to construct this portfolio.

Approach

The portfolio is constructed using a rules-based algorithm to determine position allocations. The portfolio is rebalanced quarterly and stocks having high dividend yields have a greater chance of being included.

Allocation discipline

The portfolio targets an allocation of 300 long positions. Stocks with attractive dividend yields receive higher allocations. One advantage of the portfolio is that it offers investors a stream of dividend income while also providing the potential for longer term attractive returns. As a form of risk control, the portfolio construction process is designed to penalize high volatility in stocks and avoid excessive concentration in single sectors of the market.

Sell discipline

Sell decisions are based only upon the quarterly rebalance criteria: stocks sold are replaced by stocks with more attractive dividend yields.

Exceptions

Positions in stocks undergoing corporate actions may be sold or adjusted.

All performance information on this page is based on the performance of the Portfolio Manager’s account. Client performance may differ. This information was calculated on December 13, 2017.

Important Information

  1. This portfolio was launched on IB Asset Management on December 20, 2016.
  2. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and all investments, including those in this portfolio, involve the risk of loss, including loss of principal and a reduction in earnings.  
  3. The actual performance of the manager account displayed on this page is based on the performance of an IB Asset Management proprietary account invested using this strategy and is calculated by IB Asset Management on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions. The actual performance for this portfolio is presented “net of fees” and reflects the deduction of the IB Asset Management advisory fee, Interactive Brokers LLC brokerage and other commissions and expenses that a client has to pay if he invests in this portfolio after the launch date.
  4. None of the performance information displayed on this page is based on the actual performance of any IB Asset Management client account investing in this portfolio. The performance in an IB Asset Management client account invested in this portfolio may differ (i.e., be lower or higher) from the Portfolio Manager’s account performance based on any trading restrictions imposed by the client (resulting in different account holdings), time of initial investment, amount of investment, frequency and size of cash flows in and out of the client account, applicable brokerage commissions, and different corporate actions. Clients investing in this portfolio may view the actual performance of their investment in this portfolio by logging into their IB Asset Management account and reviewing their customized dashboard.
  5. All graph data is as of the end of day for the referenced period, unless otherwise specified. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to follow a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by IB Asset Management, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
  6. The actual performance chart is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be used as the basis for making an investment decision. We rely on mathematical formulas, computer programs, and pricing information from third-party vendors (Thomson Reuters Worldscope database) to provide these returns. Neither IB Asset Management nor any of its data or content providers shall be liable for any errors in this information or any actions taken by you in reliance upon this information.
  7. Benchmark returns displayed have been calculated by IB Asset Management using daily benchmark prices and do not include dividend income. More information here. For certain portfolios IB Asset Management uses an index as a benchmark, while for others it uses an investable exchange traded fund (ETF) as a benchmark. Index returns do not reflect the deduction of any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Individuals cannot invest directly in an index. Investable ETF returns reflect the deduction of (i.e., are net of) management fees, transaction costs and expenses.
  8. Transaction history is available upon request. Portfolio classifications are provided by IB Asset Management, and are intended to serve as a general guide.
  9. Not all transactions listed will appear in accounts due to IB Asset Management's trading rules and individual client constraints. Eligibility of these securities is monitored periodically, and may change over time. Actual client investment holdings may vary.
