Seek Additional Income with Equities
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 still offer an attractive opportunity to diversify your sources of income and generate additional yield.
By partnering with iShares, you can look to domestic and international dividend paying stocks for additional income opportunities with three particular products:
- Use CYH to add instant exposure to hundreds of dividend paying companies located throughout the world.
