Intelligent access to US yield

About ZYUS

ZYUS aims to provide investors with a return that (before fees and expenses) tracks the performance of the S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index. It uses a full-replication strategy to track the index, meaning it holds all the shares that make up the index in proportion to their index weights.

This index is designed to provide exposure to 50 high yielding, low volatility stocks from the S&P 500, while meeting diversification and tradability requirements. Index constituents are weighted in proportion to their dividend yields.

Why consider ZYUS?

  • Simple, low-cost access to a selection of US dividend paying stocks.

  • Aims to achieve a yield above that of the S&P 500.

  • The low volatility screening used in the index historically has resulted in a more defensive sector allocation compared to the S&P 500.

  • Liquid and transparent.
