About

The S&P/ASX 200 (XJO) is Australia’s leading share market index and contains the top 200 ASX listed companies by way of float-adjusted market capitalisation.

In April 2000, it replaced the All Ordinaries to become Australia’s primary investment benchmark and accounts for 85% (March 2019) of the Australian equity market.

     • Used as the basis of multiple index products (e.g. VIX, SPI 200 Futures)
     • Indirect investment available through ASX listed index funds (e.g. SPDR, iShares)

The high percentage of market representation gives the index a dual function:
     1. To provide an accurate benchmark for the stock market as a whole
     2. Give institutional investors a highly liquid and tradable index

Listed companies place significant importance on their inclusion in the ASX 200 as it generates institutional interest, encourages investment and often entices research by stockbroking firms and analysts.

A five panel "Index Committee" rebalances the ASX 200 quarterly to ensure listing criteria and liquidity are maintained. Visit the Index Methodology & Calculation page for more information on the construction, maintenance and company selection criteria.

What About Dividends?

The S&P/ASX 200 Index does not include dividends.

If dividends (after tax) were included they would add ~4% p.a. to the ASX 200's performance.

Net Total Return Index

The S&P/ASX 200 Net Total Return Index (XNT) includes all cash dividends reinvested on the ex-dividend date after the deduction of a 30% withholding tax (not applied to fully franked dividends).

Net Total Return

How does XNT differ from the Total Return Index?

The XNT better represents real-world investing as the S&P/ASX 200 Total Return Index (XJOA) does not include tax payable on dividends.

The XJOA is better suited for use as a performance benchmark as managed funds and advertised investment returns do not include tax payable in the their calculations.

Note: The S&P/ASX 200 Total Return Index (XJOA) has replaced the old S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index (XJOAI).
