A Spotlight On: Searching for income

20 Nov, 2023 | Return|

“I can’t think of a worse time to go to cash. I think we are suffering from a large case of money illusion. Anyone with a 3-year time frame to go to cash here has to believe that it is going to be the longest and deepest bear market in history.”

In this month’s 'A Spotlight On’ session, Daniel Pereira, Investment Manager at Square Mile, was joined by Mike Clements (Downing Fund Managers), Ajay Dayal (Clearbridge Investments, Franklin Templeton) and David Jane (Premier Miton) for a discussion on the search for income.

A huge debate recently has been that if investors can get 5% from cash in the bank, is it worth taking the risk in financial markets? In this panel discussion, the experts looks to answer the above question, as well as:

  • Based on the current market backdrop, do you think that we are now structurally in a higher rate environment and what are the inflationary effects on income?
  • Do you think you can get a decent income stream from a passive strategy?
  • Which areas of the market are you currently avoiding?
