What is the historic/distribution/underlying yield?
The historic yield is calculated by looking at the income the fund has paid over the last year and dividing it by the latest unit price.
The distribution yield reflects the amounts that may be expected to be distributed over the next 12 months, as a percentage of the unit price. It is based on a snapshot of the portfolio.
The underlying yield is the annualised income of the fund, net of expenses, as a percentage of the unit price. It is based on a snapshot of the portfolio.
As with all yields, this is an estimate of what investors could expect to receive; it is variable and not guaranteed.
