O’Shares ETFs Q1 2021 Report:
Why Dividend Quality Matters?
2020 was challenging for global economies as the pandemic forced many businesses to shut down, at least temporarily. As a result, companies in the most impacted sectors were forced to either cut or suspend dividends. This highlighted the importance of an emphasis on dividend quality in equity income strategies. Companies that have demonstrated the ability to consistently grow dividends and have stronger dividend coverage may be better positioned to weather unexpected interruptions to operations.
