Seeking to deliver capital appreciation over the years.
ThomasPartners™ aims to deliver long-term, index-beating total returns—and has demonstrated a 10-year track record of reliable dividend payouts and consistent income growth year after year.
ThomasPartners offers two versions of its strategy.
There are two versions of the ThomasPartners Dividend Growth Strategy available to you through Schwab. One has direct exposure to master limited partnerships (MLPs) and generates IRS Schedule K-1 tax forms; the other uses exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and operating companies to secure exposure to MLPs and therefore doesn't generate IRS Schedule K-1 tax forms. Questions about which version might be right for you? We're ready to help.

Past performance is not indicative of future results; the value of investments and the income derived from them can go down as well as up. Future returns are not guaranteed, and a loss of principal may occur.
Please refer to ThomasPartners Form ADV, Part 2A, for more information.
Diversification strategies do not ensure a profit and do not protect against losses in declining markets. Investments in managed accounts should be considered in view of a larger, more diversified investment portfolio.
There are risks associated with any investment approach, and the ThomasPartners Dividend Growth Strategy has its own set of risks. First, there are the risks associated with investing in dividend-paying stocks, including but not limited to the risk that stocks in the strategy may reduce or stop paying dividends, affecting the strategy's ability to generate income. Second, investor sentiment could cause dividend-paying equities to fall out of favor or price earnings multiples to compress. Please discuss this and other potential risks with your Financial Consultant prior to investing.
The composite and index information shown above is based on historical performance of the respective composite, does not account for taxes, and assumes reinvestment of dividends. Additionally, the composite and index returns are total returns, not just price-only returns. The dividend yield is the last dividend paid divided by the price of the stock on that pay date, which is then annualized. There is no guarantee that a stock will continue paying a dividend in the future, or that the yield will remain the same or increase, as cash dividends and stock prices change over time.
The NASDAQ U.S. Broad Dividend Achievers Index TR (DAATR) comprises U.S.-accepted securities with at least 10 consecutive years of increasing annual regular dividend payments. The S&P 500 Total Return Index is a commonly recognized, market-capitalization-weighted index of 500 widely held equity securities, designed to measure broad U.S. equity performance. Indexes are unmanaged and cannot be invested directly.
