This one of a kind portfolio targets 20 high yielding blue-chip stocks* (the actual securities held in the portfolio are American Depository Receipts and trade just like stocks) listed on various European exchanges for investment and was designed to produce high levels of dividend income and even the potential for growth of income over time.

Focusing investment on companies that increase their dividends annually should position the portfolio to consistently capture to the “cream of the crop” of higher dividend companies of a variety of European exchanges.
