The index factsheets page here provides “Archives” links, but they only give access to the last year of data. The All-World was started in 1986 and the All-World High Dividend Yield was started in 2008; the sort of thing I’d really like to get hold of is a pair of factsheets from, say, 2008 to see if the country breakdown of either index was much different from what it is today.
An alternative source of info might be from funds/ETFs which track those indices (and indeed this is what motivates my interest). The two obvious (only?) ones are VHYL and VWRL but Vanguard don’t seem to provide any way of viewing historical data and in any case VHYL only appeared in 2013 and VWRL in 2012 so old snapshots of fund factsheets wouldn’t reach back as far as index data would.
I didn’t manage to coax anything useful out of the wayback machine for either site.
An alternative version of this question would be: the All-World High Dividend Yield Index's top 3 are (from end-Feb.2017 factsheets) ~40%/10%/6% USA/UK/Japan and the All-World Index's are 53%/8%/6% USA/Japan/UK but what did the numbers look like in, say, 2008 and 2013?
