The Search for Income

Low yields and increased market uncertainty continue to drive investors towards income-orientated assets. While finding assets that are reasonably valued has become increasingly difficult, there are strategies to help uncover attractive sources of investment income.

Income Investing Strategies

Diversify with multi-asset income exposure

Help mitigate volatility and seek dependable income through a single diversified portfolio of equity and fixed income assets.

Expand beyond the core fixed income allocation

Including bond sectors with lower sensitivity to interest rates may boost yield in fixed income portfolios.

Consider non-traditional equity income sources

Higher dividend-paying companies may help bolster income and growth potential in rising rate environments.
