Overcoming Low Yields and a Market Downturn with a Rising Dividend Strategy

In just the last six months, the convergence of historically low Treasury yields, increasing stock market volatility, and the looming threat of a recession has been creating a challenging time for income-seeking investors.

We believe that it is critically important for retirees and pre-retirees to understand the risks of reaching for higher yields and to consider alternative strategies for creating lifetime income sufficiency.

Right now, a rising-dividend strategy may be the best option for weathering the storm while generating a sustainable and growing income.
