The DVDY ETF tracks the Morningstar Australia Dividend Yield Focus Index which aims to capture the highest dividend-paying ASX shares, excluding A-REITs, while also meeting Morningstar’s Economic Moat, Quantitative Economic Moat, and Distance to Default Measures.
When all is said and done, between 20 and 25 companies/shares make up the DVDY ETF portfolio. Oftentimes, the largest sectors weighted in the DVDY ETF are lower than those of the wider ASX 200 index (which has a large exposure to financials/bank shares).
Investors seeking dividend income from their ASX shareholdings might consider the DVDY because it focuses on shares which show defensive characteristics and pay dividends. Like most yield ETFs, DVDY aims to pay quarterly distributions/dividends.
Dividend yield information is coming soon (how good is that!).
