Investors with longer term investment objectives often have requirements for regular income and capital growth. The Vanguard Australian Shares High Yield ETF is an equity portfolio that provides a tax-effective income stream with
the potential for capital growth in the one investment.
The ETF is managed to track the performance of the FTSE ASFA Australia High Dividend Yield Index; a real-time, market capitalisation-weighted index consisting of companies with higher forecast dividends relative to other companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). Real estate investment trusts (A-REITS) are excluded from the index.
