The Investment Case for Dividend Growth Strategies Outside of Large Caps 

Kieran Kiwan

Presented by
Kieran Kirwan, CAIA

Senior Investment Strategist, ProShares 

Session date and time 
May 1, 2023
7:20 - 7:45 a.m.     

Dividend strategies have played an important role for income-oriented large cap investors over the years. Newer strategies with high levels of yield can be intoxicating, but they may not be the best long-term solution. Dividend growth strategies can serve many functions in a portfolio besides yield. Plus, there’s so much more to the dividend story outside of traditional large caps. In this session, we will learn about the merits of dividend growth strategies in mid-and small-caps, the technology sector and why they can help investors build better portfolios.
