Income: the best form of growth?
How to invest for growth using income funds
When it comes to investing there’s no ‘one size fits all’. We all have different needs, attitudes to risk, and time horizons, and we can choose whether our investing strategy fits this – usually through investing for income or growth (accumulation).
Some people want an income from their investments to supplement their wages. Or because they’re in, or getting close to, retirement. But actually, our experts think you shouldn’t ignore investing for income – even if you’re just looking to grow your money.
In this guide we discuss:
- How to invest for growth, using income funds
- Investment ideas
Remember: Investing for growth or income comes with risks. Investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise in value, so you could get back less than you put in. Our investment ideas are there to help guide you to choosing your own investments and are not personal advice. If you need personal advice choosing your investments, please speak to a financial adviser.
