The Need for Income Diversifiers: Is Your Portfolio Providing the Income Your Clients Need? On-Demand

89% of clients want their advisors to talk to them about income and 92% of advisors say their clients ask about income investments fairly often or almost always. Recent surveys indicate an increase in holding individual bonds in portfolios, yet many remain unexposed to diversifying asset classes and investment vehicles such as closed-end funds (CEFs) that can help improve income generation potential, mitigate the negative impact of rising rates, or both. Learn how income portfolios might be improved through income-diversifying asset classes and adding CEFs, as well as how CEFs work and how to evaluate them for improved income potential.
