Seeking sustainable and reliable income streams in a challenging environment

After numerous unsuccessful attempts at exiting the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent geopolitical events, the market has seen no shortage of uncertainties. Investors seeking regular income streams find themselves challenged at every turn. Facing growing inflationary pressures and supply chain disruptions, the year ahead seems poised for a fragile recovery.

 

Against such vulnerability, shifting gears dynamically to adapt to changing conditions can help investors get ahead of emerging opportunities, as economies recover at varying paces. At Manulife Investment Management, we offer a diverse range of solutions for different income needs and risk appetites, with the objective of building consistent income streams to help investors weather market changes.

 

Navigate the road to recovery with our suite of income solutions and stay ahead of the curve in a New Normal world.

Enhanced income option

 

For investors seeking relatively higher income compared to regular payout from one source (dividends/coupons received from portfolio securities), we have introduced an enhanced income option (R share class5) which aims to provide additional, stable and predictable intended monthly income and at the same time allows you to stay invested for potential capital growth.

R share class5 provides income through two sources:

 

  • Regular payout7 from dividends/coupons received from portfolio securities. 
  • Additional payout of 2% to 5% p.a.6 from realised capital gains and/or capital. 

Both sources work together to provide potential higher monthly income and improved cash flow.

Illustration of R-shareclass

e.g. The annualised yield for Manulife Global Fund – Preferred Securities Income Fund, Class AA (USD) MDIST (G) was 5.88% in December 2021. With the additional payout (available for the R share class only), the annualised yield for the R share class for this fund was 8.29% in December 2021.

 

R share class6 is available for the following funds:

  • Manulife Global Fund – Preferred Securities Income Fund
  • Manulife Global Fund – Global Multi-Asset Diversified Income Fund
  • Manulife Global Fund – Asia Pacific REIT Fund
