The Logan International Dividend ADR strategy has a total return approach, seeking both income and capital appreciation, with a record of outperforming its benchmarks with lower risk over time. Our bottom-up selection process identifies 35-45 American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and common stocks of non-U.S. companies traded in the U.S. with high dividend yields and a longer-term investment horizon, primarily in the developed markets.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investing internationally carries additional risks such as differences in financial reporting, currency exchange risk, as well as economic and political risk unique to the specific country. This may result in greater share price volatility. Shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
