The Power of Compounding Dividend Growth

The same principles that apply to the power of compounding interest also apply to compounding dividends. Reinvesting a growing dividend can be a powerful way to increase your future income stream and fight inflation.

The following is an illustration of what an annual 5% dividend increase per share (growth rate) would mean for future income when reinvesting dividends, assuming share price remains flat and an initial yield of 3.5%. This is strictly a hypothetical illustration of mathematical principles and does not predict or project the performance or distributions of the Fund or any investment or investment strategy.
