Parametric Portfolio Associates LLC Launches Dividend Income Fund

Parametric Portfolio Associates LLC announced the launch of Parametric Dividend Income Fund (Investor Class: EAPDX; Institutional Class: EIPDX). Eaton Vance Management is the Fund's investment adviser and Parametric serves as the Fund's sub-adviser. The Fund is co-managed by David M. Stein, Ph.D., Chief Investment Officer of Parametric, and Thomas Seto, Managing Director, Portfolio Management. In managing the Fund, the portfolio managers employ a top-down, disciplined and systematic investment process that emphasizes a diversified portfolio of quality companies that have historically demonstrated high current income and lower levels of stock price volatility on a sector relative basis. To achieve broad diversification, each industry sector generally receives an equal weight. The top ranked securities within each sector based on the sub-adviser's yield and volatility screening are also generally equal weighted. The portfolio may be rebalanced on a periodic basis to maintain diversification, and is reconstituted on an annual basis.

The managers select and allocate the Fund's investments across emerging market countries based on factors such as size, liquidity, level of economic development, and local economic diversification. Relative to capitalization-weighted emerging market indexes, the company's approach to country allocation emphasizes smaller, less represented countries and reduces exposure to the largest emerging market economies. The Fund's country allocations are rebalanced to target weights when they exceed pre-determined thresholds.
