The 2020 DIRECTINVEST BlueChip Series BlackRock Index Top 20 model portfolio seeks to match the income and capital growth of the S&P/ASX 20 Accumulation Index, before taking into account model fees and expenses. Managed by BlackRock Investments Australia, the model invests in a portfolio of shares comprising of Australia's 20 largest and most liquid stocks.

Blackrock Index Top 20 is a separately managed account that provides investors access to a professionally managed blue chip share portfolio of Australia's top 20 companies including Rio Tinto, BHP, Woolworths, Macquarie Group, Commonwealth Bank, CSL, Woodside Petroleum, Wesfarmers, AMP, NAB, Telstra, Westfield and Westpac.

As a separately managed account, investors retain beneficial ownership of the underlying securities and are therefore eligible for dividends and franking credits. Learn more about separately managed accounts.
