What's in the news:
Investment grade corporate bond yields are currently at the lowest level since the 1950’s. This is concerning to income oriented investors as higher yields are becoming harder to find within the investment grade space.
The Moody's Baa Index yield is at its lowest level since 1957
What are we thinking?
We believe investors should not be forced to go further down the bond quality ladder to get a higher yield. Incorporating a sleeve of investment grade preferred securities could be a key element to enhancing a conservative portfolio's current income.
