FTSE Dividend Growth Indexes

The FTSE Dividend Growth Indexes are designed to represent the performance of companies that have successfully increased their dividend payments over a period of ten years. Companies are screened for liquidity and dividend status, then selected and equal weighted subject to a maximum sector weight of 30%. To maintain appropriate weightings, index constituents are rebalanced to equal weight on a quarterly basis. The resulting indexes are ideal tools for research, for gaining exposure to this interesting market segment and for the creation of tradable products such as ETFs.
