FTSE Global Sustainable Yield Index Series

Designed to measure the performance of stocks passing several forecast and historical yield criteria on a semi-annual basis, with constituents capped at 5%.

The FTSE Global Sustainable Yield Index Series has been designed to measure the performance of an index consisting of securities exhibiting relatively high and sustainable yields.

The indices were developed to address the inclusion of stocks in some high yield indices without reference to the likelihood that a dividend will be paid. The FTSE Global Sustainable Yield Index Series excludes extreme yielding stocks. FTSE Russell also examines the financial and operating strength of prospective constituents with specific emphasis on companies with strong balance sheets and the ability to generate cash flow. Other screening criteria include the payout ratio and incidence of historic or forecast dividend cuts as, historically, such stocks are susceptible to falling dividends and consequently yield disappointment.

Net of tax Total Return indices are also calculated, and an additional series of capped indices.
