A Rules-Based, Dividend-Yielding Approach Goes International


The AIG International Dividend Strategy Fund uses a rules-based approach to identify high dividend-yielding, non-U.S. stocks with attactive valuations and capital appreciation potential in today’s global market.    

The Fund Potentially Offers 3 Key Advantages:

  • Current Income and Capital Appreciation Potential

The Fund seeks total return by investing in approximately 50-100 high dividend-yielding stocks from companies outside the U.S.

  • Disciplined, Rules-Based Approach

Stocks are selected using a rules-based screening process based on dividend yield, profitability and valuation. This process is similar to that used in the Focused Dividend Strategy Portfolio.1

  • A Blend of Value and International Investing 

The Fund offers investors the ability to access non-U.S. companies of any size that are believed to be financially strong, undervalued and overlooked by the market.

1 While the Fund’s rules-based approach may be similar to that of the AIG Focused Dividend Strategy Portfolio (FDSAX), the investment strategies and techniques used are not the same. FDSAX is a different Fund and its performance and rankings are not those of the AIG International Dividend Strategy Fund. The Fund’s investment results will likely differ and may be higher or lower than those of FDSAX.

Effective July 2, 2012, the name of the SunAmerica International Equity Fund was changed to the SunAmerica International Dividend Strategy Fund and certain changes were made to the Fund’s investment strategy and techniques. Prior to this date, the Fund was managed as an international equity fund employing a different strategy. Effective February 28, 2017, the name of the SunAmerica International Dividend Strategy Fund was changed to the AIG International Dividend Strategy Fund. 

Investments in stocks are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. Stocks of international companies are subject to additional risks including currency fluctuations, economic and political instability, greater market volatility, and limited liquidity. These risks can be greater in the case of emerging country securities. The Fund may invest in medium-capitalization and small capitalization companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. Preferred stocks are subject to interest rate fluctuations as well as credit risk, which is the possibility that an issuer of preferred stock will fail to make its dividend payments. The market may fail to recognize the intrinsic value of particular dividend paying stocks the Fund may hold. 

The Fund employs a Disciplined Strategy and will not deviate from its strategy (except to the extent necessary to comply with federal tax laws or other applicable laws). If the Fund is committed to a strategy that is unsuccessful, the Fund will not meet its investment goal. Because the Fund will not use certain techniques available to other mutual funds to reduce stock market exposure, the Fund may be more susceptible to general market declines than other mutual funds.
