Earning investment income today is a challenge, and it’s not getting any easier. Yields are low, and over the next ten years, traditional stock and bond portfolios are expected to earn less than half of what they did over the previous five. Investing for income poses a problem, particularly for those approaching retirement, who need to generate a steady stream of income without suffering large drawdowns. Based on the saver’s needs and outcome objective, a multi-asset income solution can draw on the best opportunities across the globe to deliver investors with income, with different distribution options to provide flexibility. But not all multi-asset income approaches are created equal, and investors must consider how diversified the solution is, how dynamic and flexible their manager can be, and how the manager looks to generate alpha.
