Question

How does an accumulation dividend work?

Answer

If you hold a fund with Accumulation Units you will not receive income. Accumulation Units do not pay out income to you but reinvest dividend income from the underlying investments back into the capital value of the units.

For this reason, the accumulation unit price is higher than the equivalent income unit price.
