SBI DIVINDEND YIELD FUND NFO
SBI Mutual Funds has launched Dividend Yield Fund NFO that open for subscription from 20th February 2023. SBI Dividend Yield Fund predominantly will invests in dividend yielding stocks and aims to provide capital appreciation and regular income.
The investment objective of the scheme is to provide investors with opportunities for capital appreciation and/or dividend distribution by investing predominantly in a well-diversified portfolio of equity and equity related instruments of dividend yielding companies.
However, there can be no assurance that the investment objective of the Scheme will be realized.
What are Dividend Yield Funds?
As the name indicates, dividend yield funds invest in dividend yielding stocks. Their main motto is to provide capital appreciation by providing regular income.
The scheme would invest predominantly (at least 65% of the net assets) in companies that have a relatively high dividend yield, at the time of making the investment. Companies may also choose to do a buyback in addition to or as an alternative to dividend. This also constitutes a yield to shareholders and will be accordingly used while calculating dividend yield. The Scheme will consider dividend yielding stocks which have paid dividend (or done a buyback) in at least one of the three preceding financial years.

Why should you invest
Here are a few reasons to invest in such schemes.
1) These funds provide better yield on investments as they invest majorly in blue chip funds that provide higher dividend yield.
2) The level of risk in such funds is relatively low as they invest majorly in large-cap stocks that has proven track record of paying dividends.
3) Dividend Yield Funds have generated 9% to 14% annualized returns in the last 5 years and 12% to 15% annualised returns in the last 10 years. This shows consistent performance in this category.
