Fund Description
The Reality Shares DIVCON Dividend Defender ETF features a hedged (long/short) equity portfolio that may provide more stable returns than a long-only equity portfolio. The Fund invests 75% of its portfolio market value in the large-cap U.S. companies with the highest probability of increasing their dividends within a year, based on their DIVCON dividend health scores. The remaining 25% of the portfolio market value is used to short the large-cap U.S. companies with the highest probability of cutting their dividends within a year. The Fund s Benchmark Index is designed to capitalize on the theory that, over time, companies that consistently grow their dividends tend to have investment returns above the overall market and companies that cut their dividends tend to have investment returns below the overall market. The Benchmark Index is designed to select the companies for a long position that have the highest probability of increasing their dividend in a 12-month period and select the companies for a short position that have the highest probability of decreasing their dividend in a 12-month period. These probabilities are determined by Reality Shares DIVCON Scoring system, which is a proprietary, rules-based scoring and weighting methodology, and are expressed as a DIVCON Score and DIVCON Rating for each company.
