Who We Are
Wood Asset Management is an SEC registered investment advisory firm with over $380 million of assets under management. For over 20 years, we have successfully managed a broad range of equity and balanced strategies for institutions and individuals alike. With a singular focus on the management of money and a dedication to the satisfaction of our clients’ expectations, we offer the unique benefits of a boutique firm but with the resources usually attributable to much larger investment management companies.
The Dividend Income strategy seeks to provide a growing level of income that exceeds the average yield on the Russell 1000 Value Index with less volatility.
Philosophy and Process
We believe that dividends matter for two reasons. Historically the income component has been a meaningful contributor to total return. Secondly, the characteristics of dividend paying stocks generally leads to higher quality companies that are more focused on not only creating, but realizing shareholder value.
Our primary emphasis is on companies that we believe are attractively valued, with a history of paying a dividend, supported by a healthy cash flow profiles and secure balance sheets. This focus is complimented by a top-down approach, which influences our sector positioning. Depending on our assessment of the macro economic landscape and our conviction in the outlook, we will strategically add or reduce exposure to certain sectors.
