Thornburg Global Quality Dividend Fund

DIVIDEND INCOME FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Thornburg Global Quality Dividend Fund is a bottom-up, value-oriented, focused portfolio of dividend-paying stocks from around the world, leveraging Thornburg’s renowned capacity as a global manager, in a broad search for attractive dividend yield. It is offered for investors who wish to include dividend-paying equities in an asset mix, without the income from bonds.

“Income or dividends are an essential element of this global equity portfolio. We use a value-based research process to build an income-generating portfolio of quality businesses from around the world. In this way we seek to capture both the advantages of global diversification and the fundamental appeal of an attractive, stable stream of dividends. We believe that the structure of the Thornburg Global Quality Dividend strategy gives us a sensible framework for value-added income investing.”— Vinson Walden

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

The primary investment objective of this Fund is to provide a level of current income which generally exceeds the average yield on U.S. stocks. The secondary goal is long-term capital appreciation. There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its objectives.

SEARCHING FOR COMPANIES WITH THE ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO DISTRIBUTE EARNINGS

We are active, bottom up investors and seek to invest in securities of issuers with the ability and willingness to pay an attractive dividend today, and the potential to grow over time. We are value managers, and attempt to buy these securities at times when the market does not fully appreciate their value.

A FOCUSED, GLOBAL PORTFOLIO

We believe that diversification beyond a certain number of holdings normally yields only marginal performance benefits. The task of analyzing, understanding, and tracking 50 to 80 holdings is more manageable than that associated with an over-diversified portfolio of 200 or 300 companies.
