MSCI top 50 dividend indexes

The MSCI Top 50 Dividend Indexes are constructed to reflect the performance of the top 50 securities in the Parent Index, ranked by dividend yield, that have increased or maintained their dividend per share compared to the previous year, or have increased or maintained their payout ratio if the dividend per share has dropped by no more than 10%.

The Top 50 Dividend Indexes aim to provide exposure to a focused high income strategy with diversification provided through equal-weighting of the constituents.
