This posting features a comprehensive review of the dividend related ETF sector. There are over three dozen ETFs issued (including Elements not covered here) with more on the way in this sector to evaluate. To simplify matters for investors we’ve whittled choices down to 10. The issues chosen represent a broad cross section of domestic, global, overseas, real estate (REITs) and other sectors from a variety of sponsors. Doing so makes sorting through the sector more manageable for most investors. We’re not necessarily recommending one issue over another; rather we’re just trying to feature those issues that aren’t repetitive, although we mention other choices within each brief review where applicable.

Within each category we filter them by placing importance on high assets under management, liquidity and/or strategies that make a difference the most critical tests. Newer issues tied to new indexes with long (over 5 years) of historical data may be worth investigating, featuring and using as a replacement if necessary.
