About the Fund
The fund aims to provide investors with the performance of an index, before fees and expenses, composed of high yield Australian common stocks listed on the ASX.
The index, the S&P/ASX Dividend Opportunities Accumulation Index, provides exposure to 50 ASX listed stocks that offer high dividend yields while meeting diversification, stability and tradability requirements.
How we invest your money
The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by tracking the performance of the S&P/ASX Dividend Opportunities Total Return Index (referred to as the Index).
We believe that a full replication investment strategy is the most appropriate investment strategy to track the performance of the Index as risk relative to the Index is minimised. Our full-replication approach normally aims to purchase every security in the Index, while considering transaction costs.
What does the Fund invest in?

Generally, the Fund may also hold a small allocation of cash (or cash equivalents, that may include other BlackRock Group funds) for cash flow management purposes.
