FGD First Trust Dow Jones Global Select Dividend Index Fund

*Unless otherwise stated, data provided by FactSet.

FGD Fund Description

FGD tracks a yield-weighted index of the top 100 dividend-yielding stocks in 25 developed countries that meet sustainability criteria.

FGD Factset Analytics Insight

FGD offers yield by screening for stocks from developed countries in the S&P Global BMI that exclude REITs. Stocks are selected by dividend quality and liquidity. Companies that have demonstrated sustainability, as measured by payout ratios, and current yields higher than their 5-year average are included. The approximately 100 top-ranked stocks are then weighted by dividend yield, subject to buffers designed to limit turnover. The index is reconstituted and adjusted annually in March.
