Seeking sustainable and reliable income streams in a challenging environment

 

The pandemic has upended the global economy and countries around the world are now working hard to get back on their feet. Even with the development and rollout of vaccines, uncertainty remains over the pace of recovery. In this new normal, the unprecedented level of financial volatility highlights the importance of having sustainable and reliable income streams to meet financial objectives. Look beyond short term fixes and plan ahead to embrace uncertainties.

 

At Manulife Investment Management, we offer a suite of income funds that pay monthly or quarterly distributions1 to investors.

Our suite of income solutions for investors with different risk profiles

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 class6) 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 class6 provides income through two sources:

 

  • Regular payout from dividends/coupons received from portfolio securities. 
  • Additional payout of 2% to 5% p.a.7 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 5.94% in March 2021. With the additional payout (available for the R share class only), the annualised yield for the R share class for this fund was 8.14% in March 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
