Income-paying funds

What can income-paying funds do for investors?

Provide recurring source of cash to spend or reinvest to earn more income over time.

  • Income-paying funds, as the name implies, pay out income periodically. Thus, investors in these funds automatically receive payouts.
  • For retirees, the income payouts provide a recurring source of cash to cover living expenses.
  • For investors who are looking to continue growing their wealth, they can choose to reinvest the income payouts to earn more income over time.

Give alternative source of income when markets are volatile.

  • Even if the funds experience short-term declines in value, these are cushioned by the income payouts. This makes an income-paying fund an alternative source of income during market downturns.
  • Investing in income-paying funds can help smoothen overall portfolio returns over time.

Help investors reach their financial goals even when interest rates are low.

  • Interest rates are likely to remain low for longer with central banks across the globe expected to keep interest rates low to boost economic recovery. This makes it more challenging to rely on traditional asset classes like Time Deposits, Government Bonds and Corporate Bonds for income.
  • Some income-paying funds can invest in non-traditional asset classes like Global REITs, Preferred Securities and Equity-Related Securities that can generate higher income.
