Toronto Stock Exchange

The fund aims for capital growth by investing in Canadian stocks with high dividend yields. In creating the portfolio, the index screens out non-dividend paying companies from the S&P/TSX Composite, then it gets the median indicated annual dividend yield of the remaining companies or those with non-zero annual dividend yield. The 75 stocks with the largest annual dividend yield above the median get included in the index. The index will be composed of 50-75 stocks. Current index constituents are removed if their annual dividend yield falls below 85th and stocks can be automatically added if it ranks above the 65th position. The index is weighted by market cap, each issuer is capped at 5%, while each sector is capped at 30%. Dividend reviews are done monthly, firms that eliminated, suspended, or omitted its dividends will be removed from the index effective prior to the open of the first business day of the following month.
