Advisors Asset Management Celebrates 10th Anniversary
of Ubiquitous Strategy Portfolio

MONUMENT, COLO. — June 1, 2023 — Advisors Asset Management (AAM), a leading investment solutions provider, announced today that its Ubiquitous Strategy Portfolio, where Pence Capital Management (PCM) serves as the portfolio consultant, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary.

The Ubiquitous Strategy Portfolio is a unit investment trust (UIT) that has surpassed $3.7 billion in cumulative sales since inception. The UIT seeks to provide capital appreciation by investing in a portfolio of stocks that derive a substantial portion of their revenue worldwide and who PCM believe are involved in aspects of the transformation of consumer behavior and a shift in how people transact purchases.

“PCM has done a remarkable job capitalizing on the growth of e-commerce since inception by identifying companies at critical ‘choke points’ in the value chain,” said Richard Stewart, CFA, Executive Vice President of UITs at AAM. “AAM is dedicated to collaborating with best-in-class managers, like PCM, and are excited about the prospects of our continued partnership in creating and distributing UITs that help meet advisor demands.”

In selecting the securities for the portfolio, the following considerations were made: increasing consumer demand, a shift in how people transact purchases, expected market dominance over the next three to five years, relative size within industry sectors based on market capitalization, steadiness of past earnings growth rates and revenue growth, strength of earnings and revenue projections, balance sheet strength, valuation and levels of cash holdings.

“The long-term performance of the Ubiquitous strategy validates the fundamental process and philosophy we use with all our investments,” said Dryden Pence, President & CIO of Pence Capital Management. “I am so proud of our entire team from concept through distribution. It’s an honor to help advisors.”
