Most Canadian-focused dividend funds look for Canadian companies that have
the ability to pay, sustain, and grow their dividends. And most do a
reasonable job to meet their targets. Some managers, however, take the next
step, looking for an extra boost by supporting an active investing mandate
with a rigorous fundamental investment approach in the hope of delivering
at least index-matching longer-term returns or better. One such fund is the
Horizons Active Canadian Dividend ETF (TSX: HAL).
