    Index Key points

    Reference index:

    Morningstar® Australia Dividend Yield Focus Equal Weighted Index

    Index description:

    The Morningstar® Australia Dividend Yield Focus Equal Weighted Index tracks the performance of a portfolio of 25 high quality dividend paying Australian securities, excluding A-REITs (Australian Real Estate Investment Trusts). The Index is derived from the Morningstar® Australia Index, a broad market index representing 97% of Australian equity market capitalisation.

    After screening companies for quality, based on a combination of Morningstar's Economic Moat rating, Morningstar Quantitative Economic Moat rating and Morningstar Distance to Default measure, Morningstar selects only the top 25 securities by trailing 12-month dividend yield for inclusion in the Index. The securities in the Index are equally weighted.

    An Economic Moat is a structural feature that allows a firm to sustain excess profits over a long period of time. Companies with a narrow moat are those Morningstar believe are more likely than not to achieve excess returns for at least the next 10 years. Wide moat companies are those in which Morningstar has very high confidence that excess returns will remain for at least 10 years, and more likely than not for 20 years.

    If a company does not have an Economic Moat rating, then a Morningstar Quantitative Economic Moat Rating will be used in its place.

    Distance to Default is a measure of a company's financial health based on Morningstar's assessment of the value of the firms' assets being sufficient to cover the firm's liabilities.
