FDIV Factset Analytics Insight
FDIV is an actively-managed portfolio aiming for income from different asset groups. Each of those different asset groups has a different sub-advisor, 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). The fund may also include investments in ETFs. 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.
