Multi-asset income funds seek to provide a balanced and sustainable income investment solution, helping you maintain the income you need, while managing the risks you don't.
Meet the income challenge
Aim to beat inflation
Producing an income from our savings is vital, but we may no longer be getting the income we need from traditional sources.
Interest from savings accounts has fallen sharply since the global financial crisis, and in many cases the income from cash deposits is no longer able to keep pace with rising inflation.
Low cash savings rates may lead to future disappointment if you’re relying on your savings to supplement an existing income, perhaps in retirement, or reinvesting savings interest for long-term growth.
Broaden your horizons to boost income
Investing in income yielding assets – such as dividend-paying stocks, corporate bonds and emerging market debt – can provide an attractive income, even when interest rates are 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.
