The basics of income investing

What is income investing?

Income generation has been at the forefront of everyone's needs for a number of years. So what is Income investing? It is when you receive a regular income either weekly, monthly, yearly from your investments.


Why do we need income?

Income can help us put a little more in our wallet and may help us prepare for the future.

The goal is that on a quarterly or monthly basis regular income is generated, and that you maintain your purchasing power and try to match or beat inflation with your investment choices.


Is it right for you?

In the search for income you will need to decide the level of risk you are comfortable with. 


Things to think about on your journey to income investing

In your search for income, you will have different options such as deposits, bonds, income or multi-asset funds. However your options will depend on a number of things:
