Stocks in this article: NYX

NYSE Euronext today announced the launch of the NYSE® Diversified High Income Index (NYDVHI), a new index designed to measure the performance of a broad, diversified basket of 138 publicly-traded securities that provide exposure to multiple asset classes, sectors and segments that historically pay high dividends or distributions.

“We are pleased with the successful launch of NYDVHI,” said Nicholas Aninos, vice president, Global Index and Exchange-Traded Products, NYSE Euronext. “NYDVHI is an opportunity for our customers to use a diversified index to structure investments in high dividend-paying securities across multiple asset classes and sectors.”

The NYSE® Diversified High Income Index constituents must satisfy certain dividend yield and frequency criteria, liquidity criteria and other eligibility requirements. The index’s features and construction seek to highlight yield, while the diversification of the index constituent sectors seeks to minimize volatility.

Below are the key constituent sectors of the index:

Asset Class: Equities (60% weighting)

  • BDCs (15%)
  • Energy MLPs (15%)
  • Mortgage REITs (7.5%)
  • REITs (7.5%)
  • U.S.-listed Equities (7.5%)
  • ETFs representing International Equities (7.5%)

Asset Class: Fixed Income, Bonds and Related Assets (40%)

  • ETFs representing Municipal Bonds (10%)
  • ETFs representing High Yield Bonds (10%)
