Deutsche launches Global Dividends fund

EggDeutsche Bank has launched a fund seeking stocks that pay dividends.

The DB Platinum CROCI Global Dividends fund combines an in-house research methodology with additional filters to the MSCI World Index. The result, Deutsche Bank said in a statement, was a smaller universe of companies potentially offering above-average dividend yields. This approach aims to identify stock selection opportunities hidden by traditional metrics. The methodology was developed by the in-house research team to help overcome the traditional difficulties in comparing company data between regions, industries and individual stocks.  ©2012 funds europe
