Dividend growth: Focus on fundamentals in 2023
As the macroeconomic forces of inflationary pressures, tighter monetary policy and slowing global economic growth squeeze corporate earnings, investors need to sharpen their focus on company fundamentals. We expect global equity markets to be choppy but range-bound during the first half of 2023, but within this environment we see opportunities for good stock pickers to identify value in global large cap equities. In particular, dividend growth-oriented companies may represent a timely equity allocation in 2023 and beyond. Companies with a rising dividend policy not only provide protection against ongoing inflation and market volatility, but also offer the potential for attractive long-term total returns.

Important information on risk
All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including possible loss of principal, and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Equity investments are subject to market risk or the risk that stocks will decline in response to such factors as adverse company news or industry developments or a general economic decline. Debt or fixed income securities are subject to market risk, credit risk, interest rate risk, call risk, tax risk, political and economic risk, and income risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices fall. Non-U.S. investments involve risks such as currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. This report should not be regarded by the recipients as a substitute for the exercise of their own judgment. It is important to review your investment objectives, risk tolerance and liquidity needs before choosing an investment style or manager.
