Strategy

Investment objective and policy

The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in equities offering high dividend yields. BL-Equities Dividend invests in international companies whose current or expected dividend yield is higher than their benchmark index. There is no specific geographical, sector or monetary allocation. Companies are selected based on their valuation and intrinsic quality. This sub-fund is also available denominated in USD with the identical investment policy and performance figures (LU0751781666).

Management report - 3rd Quarter 2020

In the third quarter of 2020, BL Equities Dividend gained 3.71% (retail accumulation share in euros, net of fees). During the period, we started building a position in The Hershey Company. It is the undisputed leader in North America for chocolate and sweets and owns some iconic brands: in chocolate, the most famous are Reese's, Hershey's and Kisses, as well as licences (in the United States) for Kit Kat and Cadbury; and in sweets, Ice Breakers, Twizzlers and Jolly Rancher, for example. Hershey is managed with a long-term vision and is a model as regards ROCE, operating margins and free cash flow, all close to 20%. It has paid a dividend every year since 1930. At the time of our first investment, the gross dividend yield was 2.3%, with the dividend well covered by cash generation. Following this purchase, BL Equities Dividend is now concentrated on 33 high quality companies that have each been held for an average of over five years. At the end of the period, BL Equities Dividend offered a gross weighted average yield of 2.9%. The companies currently held in the fund post an average compound annual growth rate of their gross dividend per share of 8% over the last five years.
