Many advisers are telling us that they have never been busier with investors seeking retirement advice and that many of those investors are looking for income.
With this in mind perhaps now is the time for advisers to review their approach to generating investment income and seek out alternatives.
Multi-Asset managers have been quietly delivering attractive consistent income for many years whilst taking risk of approximately half that of the FTSE 100.
The increasing need for income
One result of pension reforms is an increasing number of investors entering invested drawdown for their retirement rather than more traditional annuity based solutions.
This has meant that the need for sustainable consistent investment income within a low volatility framework has never been higher.
Challenges to traditional low volatility income sources
With increasing market uncertainty, rising inflation predicted and the reality of a prolonged bear market for traditional low volatility income sources such as gilts and investment grade bonds, advisers are starting to review and consider alternative approaches to meet income needs.
An alternative approach
Investing in value equity stocks and funds with higher yield fixed income approaches is just part of the story.
Combining this with alternative investments delivers not only the income but also the increased diversification to reduce overall volatility and risk.
