1 A Case for Dividend Investing Many investors may be surprised to learn that dividends paid by companies have accounted for 45% of the total return for Australian equities over the last 10 years 1. Buying companies that pay strong, sustainable, tax effective dividends has been a long term strategy which has benefited investors across market cycles. DIVIDENDS A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF EQUITY TOTAL RETURN Dividends have historically been a critical component of the overall return from an investment in Australian equities. On a cumulative basis, dividend income has contributed more than one third of total return for Australian equities since 1980, with capital appreciation accounting for the rest (See Figure 1). During the last decade this proportion has increased with dividends contributing around 45% of the total Australian equity return over the 10 years to December Quite clearly dividends matter to total returns. FIGURE 1: AUSTRALIAN ALL ORDINARIES INDEX GROWTH/ INCOME RETURNS DECEMBER 1979 TO DECEMBER % 10.0% 5.0% 0.0% -5.0% -10.0% 12.68% 4.99% Growth 6.22% 4.40% 4.62% 4.22% 3.90% Income Dec Dec 1989 Dec Dec 1999 Dec Dec 2009 Dec Dec 2011 Dec Dec 2011 Source: SSgA and Factset UPSIDE POTENTIAL WITH REGULAR CASH FLOWS Capital appreciation and dividend income together make up the total return from an investment in shares. Historically dividend income has proven to be a far more stable component of the total returns than capital appreciation. In markets where capital appreciation is absent or negative, dividends can provide a steady source of returns % 6.70% 4.49% During turbulent times, strong dividend yields can act as a buffer to cushion overall returns. For example, during 2002 and 2008, the MSCI Australia Investable Market Index (the market index ) 2 fell by 9.1% and 38.8% respectively. During the same period, the MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield index returned 3.5% and 2.1% respectively(see Figure 2). Moreover the MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Index also participated in market upswings, slightly outperforming the broader market index over the last ten years. A dividend focused strategy may make sense for investors looking for regular income while also wanting to participate in capital appreciation.

2 COMPOUNDING EFFECT To illustrate the effects of dividends on equity returns, the history of price and dividend reinvested total returns of the market index from May 1994 to May 2012 is illustrated in Figure 3. Excluding dividends, a $100,000 investment in the market index on 31 May 1994 would have grown to $212,658 by the end of May The same amount of investment with dividends reinvested would have amounted to $434,328 during the same period, more than doubling the investment return without dividend reinvestment.

Australian resident tax payers can use these credits to offset their tax liabilities or to get a cash refund depending on their tax circumstances. Sustainable and persistent dividends are usually paid by mature and stable companies with a good track record of dividend payments. They also tend to be paid from profits that have already been taxed, and so usually come with franking credits attached. A dividend focused strategy that boosts income by 1% pa may increase income by as much as 1.4% pa after including the benefits of franking credits. May-03 May-04 May-05 May-06 May-07 May-08 May-09 May-10 May-11 May-12 DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGE AND DIVIDEND INCOME Like many other developed countries, Australia is faced with an aging population. Treasury has projected a doubling of the population aged 65 to 84 years and quadrupling of population aged 85 and over by The government s three pillars toward retirement funding are voluntary saving, compulsory superannuation guarantee contributions and the government sponsored age pension. 5 Although the cornerstone of the Australian retirement system, the age pension system can only provide a modest retirement support for those people who cannot fully support themselves. Increasingly, more retirement funding will be via savings inside or outside the superannuation system, creating an increasing pool of assets to be drawn upon by retirees. Developing investment strategies to support retirees presents particular challenges. There is usually a requirement for income to support ongoing living expenses, but there is also often some reluctance to remove all prospects for growth by investing only in fixed income securities and cash. We believe that dividend focused strategies have attractive attributes for investors seeking to build a post retirement portfolio. INCOME: EQUITIES, BONDS OR CASH? For investors focused on income generation, there are a number of asset classes or strategies available. Equity strategies deliver dividends, fixed income strategies deliver interest coupon payments while cash strategies deliver daily or monthly interest payments. Figure 4 shows the yearly incomes of a number of investment strategies over the last 12 years. The incomes are calculated based on historical returns of $100,000 invested at the end of May 2000, assuming no dividend reinvestment. Perhaps surprisingly, the dividend income from the MSCI Australian Select High Dividend Yield Index has not only exceeded the broader market over this period, it has also exceeded both 90-Day Bank Bills and 10-Year Australian Government Bonds. When franking credits are taken into account, the total return from the MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Index is significantly higher than returns from the broader market index, cash and bond strategies. 6 With yields on cash and fixed income, on average, at the lower end of their 10 year history, dividend income could play a significant role for investors building a portfolio for sustainable income. Specifically designed to target high dividend paying stocks, the MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Index provided additional yield of 1.7% pa more than the broader market such as the market index as at 31 May Taking franking credits into account the additional yield pick up was almost 2.5%pa at that point in time. 3 2

Source: SSgA, Factset, MSCI and RBA RETIREMENT PLANNING AND MARKET VOLATILITY One criticism of equity investing for retirees is the risk of short term capital loss from which the investor is unable to recover. Younger investors, with many years remaining until retirement and with cash flowing into superannuation accounts, are often better able to ride out the ups and downs of the equity market. It is true that asset class diversification in a post-retirement portfolio is desirable for risk management purposes. However the case against equities can be overstated. New retirees typically face many, many years during which they require productive investments. How then, should retirees approach equity market volatility? In our view equity market volatility is less of a problem if retirees have at least some flexibility around the income they require in any given year. A retiree who has fixed, non-negotiable cash flow requirements can be more vulnerable to short term equity market movements. For this retiree, a sharp drop in equity markets may increase the rate at which capital is used to fund non-negotiable cash flow requirements. A retiree with some flexibility to reduce cash draw downs while equity market values and/or income levels are depressed should be much better equipped to ride the ups and downs of the equity market. Dividend focused strategies can allow retirees to more readily budget their cash flow requirements with a view to limiting the extent to which capital is depleted in a market downturn. ACTIVE OR PASSIVE, LISTED OR UNLISTED There are merits in both active and passive investment styles that have often been debated in financial literature. Passive investing generally has the benefits of low cost, diversification and transparency. The MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Index provides a suitable benchmark for investors seeking to build a diversified portfolio focused on dividend yield. The index targets companies paying above average dividend yields that also meet sustainability and persistency screens established by MSCI. Further information is available at products/ indices/custom/methodology.html Globally, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) have become increasingly popular among both institutional and retail investors as a means of gaining passive exposure to a market segment or index. An ETF contains a basket of shares that tracks a specific index, providing instant diversification compared to a single share. ETFs can be bought and sold on listed stock exchanges through brokers just like normal shares, giving investors full control and flexibility over their investment. Benefits of investing in a passive ETF include trading flexibility, diversification, low management costs and transparency. Given they are passively managed, ETFs tend to have lower turnover than actively managed funds, which can reduce overall transaction costs. Another major advantage of an ETF strategy is its transparency. Transparency levels are high; investors have access to the underlying index methodology, and the full list of stocks held by the ETF on a daily basis with performance and regular reporting also required by the Australian Securities Exchange. The SPDR MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Fund (SYI) tracks the MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Index and has been launched with a particular view to investors seeking above average dividends from their equity investments. Investors should consult the Product Disclosure Statement before investing. CONCLUSION Historically, dividends have been a substantial component of the total return available on Australian shares. Dividend orientated strategies, such as the SPDR MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Fund, seek to provide regular and stable income, while also participating in long term capital appreciation. In the Australian context, dividends can also provide value for eligible investors through franking credits. In current market environment of relatively lower interest rates, dividend focused strategies such as the MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield Index have delivered income levels that exceed bonds and cash. 3
