Brookmont Equity Dividend Portfolio, Series 20
Brookmont Capital Management (“Brookmont”) is an employee-owned registered investment advisor whose investment strategy is based on a portfolio of individual equities that provide attractive
current yields, potential dividend growth, and the opportunity for capital appreciation. They execute a top-down approach, beginning with a solid understanding of current economic and market
cycles, and use their macroeconomic outlook in determining their asset allocation models, sector weightings, and seek to identify attractive areas of the market.
The Brookmont Equity Dividend Portfolio is a unit investment trust which invests in common stocks with above-average dividend yields and the potential for long-term capital gains. Not limited to a
certain “style”, Brookmont selects stocks they believe offer attractive valuations with below-market risk profiles.
The Importance of Dividends
Dividends have historically been one of the few constants in the world of investing, and they have had a
significant impact on stock performance, contributing nearly half of the stock market’s total return.
According to Ibbotson Associates, dividends have provided approximately 42% of the 9.99% average
annual total return on the S&P 500 Index from 1926 through 2018. Of course, past performance is no
guarantee of future results.
The S&P 500 Index is an unmanaged index of 500 stocks used to measure large-cap U.S. stock market performance.
The index cannot be purchased directly by investors.
This unit investment trust seeks above-average total return through a combination of capital
appreciation and dividend income; however, there is no assurance the objective will be met.
