Dividends4Life: High-Conviction Dividend Investing: Athena High Dividend ETF

With the Athena High Dividend ETF, AdvisorShares is bringing on board Dr. Thomas Howard, a former academic turned money manager superstar. So, what makes DIVI different from the existing dividend ETFs on the market, such as the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (VIG) or the iShares Select Dividend ETF (DVY)?

To start DIVI is a global ETF, spanning American, developed international and emerging market equities. Its second-largest portfolio holding is Telefonica Brasil, and it also holds Australian Macquarie Infrastructure, Chilean Banco de Chile BCH +0.13%, and British Tesco , among several other non-U.S. holdings. DIVI specifically lists “global diversification” as part of its investment mandate. Secondly—and virtually uniquely among dividend ETFs—DIVI includes equity REITs, mortgage REITs, master limited partnerships (“MLPs”), closed-end funds and business development companies (“BDCs”) in its investment universe.
