Franklin LibertyQ European Dividend UCITS ETF

Fund Description

The Fund invests in high quality large and mid-capitalisation stocks with high and persistent dividend income in developed countries in Europe. It seeks to track the performance of the LibertyQ European Dividend Index (the “Underlying Index”) as closely as possible. The Fund aims to replicate the Underlying Index by holding all of its securities in a similar proportion to their weighting in the Underlying Index. The holdings of the Underlying Index are selected from the MSCI Europe IMI ex REITs Index (the “Investment Universe”), using a transparent selection process which applies a dividend persistence and yield screen followed by a quality screen.

Access to Above Average Yields across Europe

The fund provides exposure to companies across Europe that have a track record of consistent or rising dividends over the last five years

Focus on Quality Can Reduce Risks

The strict focus on quality companies provides investors with the potential for volatility reduction and stability of income.

Built on Active Insights

With over 70 years of history in fundamental research, our methodology provides targeted exposure to quality companies with an attractive dividend history to help investors seek strong risk-adjusted returns over the long-term.
