Identifying strategies to help generate income in a low-yield world

Key takeaways:

Seeking yield

With sustained low interest rates, investors must look beyond high-grade debt for income potential

Managing market uncertainty

When market uncertainty leads to disruption in the equity markets, the diversification many bond funds can provide is critical.

Addressing today’s challenges for investors

With people living longer and needing an appropriate level of income, there is far more built-in demand for traditional fixed income today. This has created downward pressure on interest rates.

Traditionally, investments such as government debt and other high-quality bonds might have helped investors achieve both their goals of current income and stability. In today’s economic environment, that approach may no longer be sufficient.

At Invesco, we have an array of strategies that can be used to help build a diversified income portfolio.

Important information

An issuer may be unable to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer’s credit rating.

Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.

Non-investment grade securities may be subject to greater price volatility due to specific corporate developments, interest-rate sensitivity, negative perceptions of the market, adverse economic and competitive industry conditions and decreased market liquidity.

Diversification does not guarantee a profit or eliminate the risk of loss.

You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.
