Dividend paying equities still offer an attractive opportunity to diversify your sources of income and generate additional yield.
Despite concerns over rising interest rates, yields on traditional bonds remain low by historical standards making income from fixed income investments hard to come by.
Dividend paying equities can offer a unique opportunity to both generate income and potentially profit from growth. Plus, they may offer some downside protection in challenging markets.
