What makes this pool unique?

The pool uses artificial intelligence to out-perform the market.

The portfolio manager uses artificial intelligence to help identify stocks with remarkable dividend growth potential.

Quality companies with high dividend growth are uncommon – that’s why this pool owns just 4% of the companies in the S&P 500.

Long-term outperformance.

The strategy has outperformed the S&P 500 over the last 10 years without ever owning any of the FAANGs.
