Kempen Global High Dividend Fund N.V. celebrates ten-year anniversary

Today, the Kempen Global High Dividend Fund N.V. celebrates its ten-year anniversary. Since its inception, the fund has achieved total returns of over 100%, averaging an annual return of over 7%. On a quarterly basis, over 1% of these returns were shared with the shareholders in the form of dividend.* 

One of the highlights of the past decade was the awarding of the highly coveted ‘Gold’ rating to the fund by Morningstar. The Kempen Global High Dividend Fund N.V. was the first fund in the Benelux countries to have garnered such a rating in 2012. To this very day, the fund has succeeded in retaining this rating in the category of ‘World Stock – Dividend’. 

The Dividend team consists of six highly experienced and dedicated portfolio managers, the majority of whom have been working together for over 18 years. Jorik van den Bos, Head of the Global High Dividend fund, has been part of the team since the launch. He stated: ‘During the decade that we have been operating and running the fund, we have always remained faithful to our own investment beliefs. We have never wavered nor swerved, we have consistently implemented improvements, and we have pursued our strategy with focus and dedication. This has been an important success factor for the fund. As far as we are concerned, this is only the beginning.’
