Moneybuilder Income

  • Invest From: £25 pm

Why we like it: A fund with a conservative approach to bond investing. The focus is on quality companies that are in good financial health and generate enough cash to keep paying bondholders. Aims to provide a relatively steady income and a small amount of growth, without taking excessive risks. It could help diversify a portfolio focused on shares, or be used as a way to limit volatility during tougher times for stock and bond markets.

Multi Manager High Income

from Hargreaves Lansdown

Regular Savings
Allows ISA Transfers
  • Fund Choice: HL blend their favourite equity income funds to provide investors an investment which aims to deliver long term returns & reliable monthly income. Capital at risk.
  • Invest From: From £25

Why we like it: The Hargreaves Multi Manager High Income fund aims to deliver a high monthly income to clients by blending different types of funds and moving between different areas of the market when more attractive opportunities emerge. HL also aim to grow this income payment over time and therefore may invest in higher risk smaller companies they believe offer great potential for long term capital growth.

Listed Equity Income

from AVIVA Investors

Regular Savings
Allows ISA Transfers
  • Fund Choice: Aims to provide a dividend yield above the FTSE All-Share Index. Invests in UK equities judged to offer high yield, above average prospects of dividend growth and long-term capital growth. Income paid twice yearly. Capital at risk.
  • Invest From: £25 pm

Why we like it: Getting paid a regular income is a priority for many investors. Whether you’re in retirement, or want to boost your existing income, an equity income fund could be right for you. Even if you do not need income now, you can opt to reinvest it to boost capital growth. An emphasis on dividends and dividend growth makes this fund a more traditional UK equity income fund, in our view, so it could help form the foundation of an income portfolio.

Income Fund ISAs

Funds and investments are a great way to income invest as you can spread the risk over a range of equities or assets. Income Funds invest in portfolios of companies that pay out constant dividends. This is less risky than investing in individual shares.

What is an Income Fund ISA?

An income fund ISA is a way of using your ISA allowance with the aim of providing you with a regular tax-efficient income payment on your investment or savings. Income may be paid on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis, so you can choose an option to suit your savings goals.
