In the latest Big Debate, our panelists from Brown Shipley and Guinness Asset Management discussed Income.
With bonds markets overbought and over sold, are equities the only place income seeking investors should be looking currently?
Or with interest rates still low, and likely to remain so in the US and UK for more than a year, is there still a good case to be made for bonds?
Is the current investment dilemma for clients a straight choice between equities and bonds? Or should an income portfolio be a mixture of the two?
If so what are the right kind of equities - UK, international, higher yielding?
And where are the opportunities in the bond markets that are not going to leave investors nursing capital losses just to maintain an income?
This Big Debate will tackle this income investment dilemma with a leading bond manager and a leading equity income manager.
On the panel:
Kevin Doran, Senior Fund Manager, Brown Shipley
Dr. Ian Mortimer, co-manager, Guinness Global Equity Income Fund and the Guinness Global Energy Fund.
