Equity Income Portfolio

It makes sense to invest across a range of funds and markets, as diversification helps reduce risk. If you are a new investor or looking for a simple starting point then our ready-made fund selections might help.

The Equity Income Portfolio’s objective to produce a conservative income yield with potential capital growth from UK equities.  Equity funds typically invest in large, stable and profitable companies so could form the foundation of almost any portfolio.  The funds in this portfolio have excellent long track records apart from the Woodford Fund with only a one year performance rating.  However, the fund has started off well with over 20% growth in the first yea, so a must to include it within this Portfolio.  Based on the past income payments of the listed funds, the yield for this portfolio is projected to be 3.73% (as at 19/01/2018).

Please remember however, that any income yields quoted are not guaranteed and are not a reliable indicator for future returns.  Investors in this Portfolio must be willing to accept some short term fluctuations in the value of their investments. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested.

The Seymour Sinclair Portfolios are designed for consideration by investors who are seeking a combination of funds which offer diversification across different asset classes. These suggested portfolios are not financial advice or personal recommendations and you should be sure of their suitability to you before investing.

You remain in charge of your own investment portfolio and you must continue to monitor the funds you have selected to decide if the portfolios remain suitable for you. You may customise your portfolio by deciding different percentage (%) allocations to each fund or by removing funds or adding your own choice of funds. This is a foundation to start a portfolio that you manage yourself. If we make any changes to our suggested fund choices they will NOT automatically be reflected in your portfolio – you would need to instruct us accordingly. If you are unhappy to make your own investment decisions please seek Financial Advice.
