Income Generation

Predictable income generation is an essential pursuit as investors strive to meet financial obligations and achieve long-term goals. But each investor’s outcome is affected by individual factors like the stage of his or her lifecycle (i.e., accumulation versus retirement), plus macro factors like the rate of inflation or disinflation. Traditionally, income has been generated from variable sources like interest payments, dividends and capital gains, as well as guaranteed sources like annuities. Yet, traditional income sources have become less predictable as financial markets have become more global and dynamic. The following income generation solutions may complement investors’ portfolios by seeking to provide targeted and innovative sources of income to respond to dynamic market factors.

Index Methodology


1SEC Subsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Subsidized Yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days. It is a "subsidized" yield, which means it includes contractual expense reimbursements and it would be lower without those reimbursements. It may also include an inflation adjustment that can cause the yield to vary substantially from one month to the next.
2SEC Unsubsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Unsubsidized Yield calculation is also computed under the same SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days, but excludes contractual expense reimbursements, resulting in a lower yield. It may also include an inflation adjustment that can cause the yield to vary substantially from one month to the next.
3Distribution Yield
This yield is calculated by taking the most recent distribution annualized and dividing by the fund NAV from the as of date. For Funds that distribute monthly, an NA will be displayed if the fund has not distributed within the last 35 days.
412-Month Dividend Yield
This yield is calculated by assuming any income distributions over the past twelve months and dividing by the sum of the most recent NAV.
