FDIV Factset Analytics Insight

In a popular space dominated by index-based ETFs, FDIV serves up an actively managed portfolio aiming for income from different asset groups. Here's the first wrinkle: each of those different asset groups has a different subadvisor, providing an additional active management layer. The fund hunts for income across a broad swath of asset types: high-yield bonds, bank loans, preferred stock, MBSs, MLPs, dividend-paying equity (including option overlays), and sovereign debt (including emerging markets).However, FDIV actively allocates to these asset types using a variety of inputs (momentum, fundamentals, long-term return expectations, correlations, and macroeconomic conditions) and has broad discretion with respect to weights (0% to 50%) in each asset class. This flexibility means that any resemblance to the broader income market is merely coincidental. The fund should appeal to those seeking yield but not the fixed top-line allocations used by many competitors.FDIV should be traded with care: daily volume is low and spreads can be extremely wide. Its underlying basket of other funds should make block trades a bit easier, especially when working through the issuer First Trust. Given all its moving parts, its fee seems reasonable.
