Income Investing

Let’s talk about income

Data has shown that companies that pay dividends and grow their dividends tend to outperform the broader market over the longer term1.

Income stocks look cheap compared to the overall market. With elevated economic uncertainty the market should focus back on dividends as the main contributor to total returns.

We think central banks will cut rates later this year. In this environment, income-paying investments should benefit from lower borrowing costs and increased liquidity, potentially outperforming growth-oriented investments.
