Our philosophy

One team of research professionals that adheres to a disciplined, repeatable investment process
Total return strategy that looks beyond yield to evaluate dividend growth potential and risk

Investment beliefs
  1. Portfolio dividend growth rate greater than the index
    High quality companies with growing dividends offer the best risk-adjusted returns. Santa Barbara Asset Management capitalizes on dividend growth potential of newer dividend-paying companies and those expected to increase capital return to shareholders.
  2. Portfolio beta less than the index
    Risk controls are necessary to minimize volatility and provide a measure of downside risk mitigation. Santa Barbara Asset Management executes rigorous maintenance research, diversifying across sectors and constructing portfolios with lower-than-market beta.
  3. Portfolio yield equal to or greater than the index
    Dividends are a meaningful contributor to total return. Santa Barbara Asset Management diversifies portfolios across a wide range of dividend paying companies rather than overemphasizing higher yielding companies.
