How we find the best dividend protection stocks.

Only the best dividend safety stocks are considered for the portfolio.

We run the industry’s most demanding safe dividend screening test across +2,500 dividend stocks. Can a company afford their dividend? How likely are they to increase their dividend? What are their long-term earnings prospects? Do they have too much debt? How did the business perform in recent recessions? Are there other operating risks that pose a threat to their dividend policy? We assign strict thresholds for such questions and our research team performs further analysis. We track macro news, industry trends, competitive dynamics and specific company reports and then incorporate this understanding into a final decision for the portfolio, which is monitored daily.

How the portfolio is setup to protect your dividend income.

Targeting very safe dividends to preserve capital and beat inflation.

Designed for investors with low risk tolerance, this portfolio optimizes for very safe dividends.
