Income seekers are increasingly looking beyond cash and government bonds to capitalise on the more attractive income opportunities that exist across global markets.
Investing in higher yielding assets – such as dividend-paying stocks, corporate bonds and emerging market debt – can provide an attractive income, even with interest rates so low.
It’s important to remember that markets are volatile and your capital, as well any income produced, can fall as well as rise. However, these risks can be managed through balanced investment options.
The key is to diversify across a broad range of attractive income opportunities and to invest for the long term so that you can lessen the impact of any short-term market volatility.
