Are income investors at crossroads?

For investors seeking income, Australian equities have provided a superior outcome relative to term deposits. It’s been the no brainer of the last decade. However, the next 12 months will likely see a term deposit deliver a similar income return to the ASX300. Should investors ditch their Aussie equities and allocate more to cash?

In this video, Jason Teh, Chief Investment Officer at Vertium Asset Management, discusses this topic plus:

  • The importance of franked dividends in Australian equities investment.
  • Why income from deposits is volatile.
  • The importance of capital growth over time.
