Investors usually find dividend-paying assets to be great investment choices. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are investment vehicles that trade like stocks, but like a mutual fund hold a bundle of securities. Dividend ETFs focus on dividend-paying securities and usually track a dividend index,  providing a reliable distribution for shareholders.

4 Benefits of Dividend ETFs

  • Instant diversification of the basket of holdings in the ETF.
  • ETFs provide both general and segmented investing strategies; they can cover the overall market or only a specific market capitalization, volatility, or geography- just to name a few factors.
  • Simplicity of owning many holdings within one vehicle, which saves time and commissions compared to holding each security separately.
  • Lower fees compared to other investment vehicles such as mutual funds.

Below, we’ve provided a sample list of the major dividend paying ETFs. Please note that ETFs may have different tax implications and liquidity than regular equities, so speak to a professional financial advisor first.
