Income

The yield of a fund refers to the level of income it has paid over the past year and is expressed as a percentage. Some funds will target a specific level of income, while others will not. It is important to remember that very few funds have a fixed income and therefore vary over time. The different types of fund which usually produce a meaningful level of income are predominantly bond funds, equity income funds and property funds. When you select an income fund, you need to bear in mind that lower income funds (typically equity funds) may produce more capital growth (which in the long term could mean a growing income), whilst those targeting a higher income may do so at the expense of some capital growth.
