Follow the Money with Asset Management Dividend Stocks

Asset management stocks don’t usually get the same exposure as the top financial stocks but they are worth a look and consideration for your portfolio. My portfolio strategy is to have just around 20% exposure to the financial sector and I am trying to spread it across the banking industry, the credit card stocks and the asset management industry. Across the 3 industries, there should be be enough coverage to maintain a balanced portfolio and mitigate any negative impact to one of the industries.

Before you read on the business of each asset management dividend stocks, here is how they have performed over the past 5 years.

My portfolio is generating over 12% annual returns since 2009. It's not from the beginning of the year or from 2019, it's from 2009 !!! That's a consistent return which means using the rule of 72, I double my portfolio every 6 years.

My approach is simple but you need key data that I have cultivated with the Dividend Snapshot Screeners. No other investment services provide you with easy to understand data but also actionable data. No hidden magic.

In fact, I have tried all of the investment services for dividend investors like a crash test dummy of investment services. Just ask me, and you'll learn why there was nothing I could use out there and build the Dividend Snapshot Screeners.
