The Switzer Dividend Growth Fund (Quoted Managed Fund) (SWTZ or the Fund) is an income-focused exchange-traded managed fund with a mix of yield and quality companies.

The Fund aims to provide investors with an income return that exceeds the S&P/ASX 100 Accumulation Index (Index) (after fees) over rolling 12-month periods, while also maintaining a lower level of volatility relative to the Index over rolling 12-month periods.

The Fund is managed by Vertium Asset Management, Sydney-based Australian equity fund manager. Vertium was created to fill a perceived void in the market for retirement portfolios: a strategy that can provide income (and capital growth potential) from investing in Australian shares, with a genuine focus on capital preservation and lower sensitivity to volatile market movements.
