Income investing as a key theme
Income investing is nothing new. In fact, it’s been a key theme in the investment world for decades. Many investors stand to benefit from using their savings to provide an income – either to supplement an existing income stream, dampen the effects of market volatility, or reinvest the income payments for long-term growth.
Boosting existing income
Many of us rely on our savings to give us an income, perhaps to bump up a pension or to help with household bills. Income investing can help to offset the impact of low real interest rates by giving investors easier access to more attractive income streams.
Cushioning market volatility
Income investing can help to cushion returns through periods of market volatility. Although price returns will vary from month to month, a regular and consistent income stream (while not guaranteed) can potentially add an element of stability to an investment portfolio.
Reinvesting for long-term growth
Income payments can be a significant contributor to total returns over time. Theoretically, reinvestment of regular income distributions can help to boost long-term gains through the power of compounding, so income investing is a powerful way to save for the future.
