My understanding is that a stock ETF's distribution yield is not the same as its dividend yield, since the former is net taxes and fund fees and might also include "other distributions" than just dividends, whereas the latter is simply the dividends of the underlying holdings in relation to current share price.
So basically the index dividend yield doesn't matter, only the distribution yield does, since that's the money that actually ends up in my bank account correct?
However, I noticed that some popular ETFs such as the Vanguard FTSE All World High Dividend Yield ETF does not even list a distribution yield, just something called "equity yield (dividend)" which I thought was odd, since I always thought of the equity yield as the total return including share appreciation, but OK.
Here is the fact sheet for reference: https://www.justetf.com/servlet/download?isin=IE00B8GKDB10&documentType=MR&lang=en
My question is: how would I be able to work out what the distribution yield is for this ETF to decide whether this is a good investment, assuming I'm mostly interested in cash flows i.e. dividends not price appreciation?
