Our view on the sector

Equity income funds are popular with investors. Most try to generate a rising income, and increase the value of your original investment, over the long term. The income can be paid out, or reinvested to boost long-term growth. Equity income funds have traditionally focused on the UK, and there's still a strong case for UK equity income. But there's a growing case for investing globally for income too. The number of companies outside the UK offering high and rising dividends has increased rapidly. And exposure to foreign currencies will boost returns if sterling weakens, like it did after the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016, but the reverse is true if sterling strengthens.
