It's not a top-heavy fund either, which I like for diversification principles. The top 10 holdings account for about 17.5% of total holdings. Names like Nestle, Novartis, HSBC , Toyota, and Royal-Dutch Shell are among the top ten, so there's some good quality holdings here. At current prices, we're getting a 3.8% dividend to own this fund.
