With so many investors searching for income, we hope this area is useful.
Have a look at our special report on income and where to find it, published on 27 April 2015.
Life used to be simpler. If you had a bit of spare cash or you wanted to save up for something you’d just stick some money in a bank or building society account. If you had a nest egg and wanted to invest it in something safe and live off the income, you’d maybe buy a gilt (UK government debt) or a corporate bond (debt issued by companies). If you were on the point of retiring you’d be forced, eventually, to buy an annuity. Now, although all those options are still open to you, they don’t all look that attractive. In this document we try to look at some of the ways you can use the investment companies market to find income producing investments and we talk through some of the available funds.
Growing / Shrinking dividends
You can access the latest report by looking for the latest “QuotedData Investment Companies Roundup” in the Quoted Fund Research library We have a section that looks at how investment companies’ dividends are changing, year on year.
