Alternative Investing Strategies

Income investing remains an important component of an investor’s portfolio in a time marked by rising debt loads, low interest rates and stagnant wages. Finding sources of income is a challenge. 

In today’s low interest rate environment, dividend paying stocks can be an attractive way to potentially generate more yield and diversify sources of income within a client’s portfolio. However, they can add to more risk than an investor may want to take on.
