When investing, your capital is at risk. The value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you put in.

There are many strategies I can adopt in my quest to become a Stocks and Shares ISA millionaire. One of them could be by loading my portfolio with high-dividend stocks to supercharge my passive income.

An article from my Foolish colleague John Fieldsend recently caught my eye. Analysing data from AJ Bell, it showed which UK shares are most popular with ISA millionaires.

These can be seen in the table below.

RankStockForward dividend yield
2Lloyds Banking Group6.5%
6National Grid5.6%
8Scottish Mortgage Investment Fund0.5%
9Legal & General Group7.2%
10HSBC Holdings10.2%

Investing for dividends

As you’ll notice, the table is dominated by companies that pay above-average dividends. Only GSK, Haleon, and Scottish Mortgage offer dividend yields below the 3.8% average for FTSE 100 shares.

Buying dividend shares — and then reinvesting the payouts I receive — can be a great way to generate long-term wealth. This way I earn money on my initial investment and then on the dividends I reinvest. Over a period of decades this can add up to a seriously big sum.

Just ask one of the 4,000 people who have made millions in their ISAs. Of course there are many more dividend stock investors who made their fortunes outside of these tax wrappers, too.

A FTSE dividend share I’ve bought

I myself have packed my portfolio out with high-dividend shares from the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. Life insurance giant Aviva (LSE:AV.), which is featured in that Top 10 list above, is one of these.

At 7.2%, it currently offers one of the largest dividend yields on the Footsie. But while the yields on some blue-chip shares look vulnerable, I believe payout forecasts here look pretty robust.

Profits could suffer if the tough economic climate keeps demand for its financial products under pressure. However, the company has a cash-rich balance sheet it can use to keep paying huge dividends. Its Solvency II capital ratio stood at 207% as of December.

I expect the passive income from Aviva shares to steadily rise over time, too. This should be supported by growing demand for wealth, insurance and retirement products as the UK, Irish, and Canadian populations rapidly age.

… and one more on my radar

In the coming months I’m hoping to add National Grid (LSE:NG.) shares to my ISA as well. It has the qualities needed to continue paying market-beating dividends over the long term, in my opinion.

The power transmission business doesn’t have competitors chipping away at its earnings. Demand for its services also remains stable at all points of the economic cycle. This in turn gives it the financial means and the confidence to pay a big (and usually growing) dividend year after year.

Indeed, its dividend yield rises to 5.8% over the next three years.

Keeping the UK’s electricity grid up and running is expensive business. But I’m confident the FTSE firm still has what it takes to keep its progressive dividend policy rolling, which in turn could make me massive returns over the coming decades.

Should you invest, the value of your investment may rise or fall and your capital is at risk. Before investing, your individual circumstances should be assessed. Consider taking independent financial advice.
