John Jacobs, Executive Vice President, NASDAQ OMX Global Information Services, addresses the growth of Dividend & Income Index Strategies in the first installment of his video series.

Transcript: Since 2007, 2008, since the financial crisis, it’s been very difficult for institutional and individual investors to find yield. So dividend investing has a lot of advantages because it guarantees investors a yield on their portfolio instead of just relying on the performance of the stock, or the underlying stocks in the ETF. So with the acquisition of the Dividend Achievers suite of products, we can marry that with our income family of products and offer investors a suite of different indexes to use. The indexes are a basis for a variety of ETFs and other types of products and it’s another stepping stone for NASDAQ as we continue to build out our Global Index business, which has become multi-asset class and, as well, multi-different investment style.
