We see investing for income differently.

Canadian investors, especially those entering retirement are facing two major challenges:

  1.      Difficulty generating sufficient income in a low yield environment.
  2.      Taking on more risk in the form of volatility to find additional income.

These "income" challenges are not going away any time soon and for those investors who are facing or are in retirement, their thirst for yield while managing downside protection is only getting stronger.   

Traditionally solutions to these challenges often come in the form of high yield bonds or equities. The problem with this is that investors may have to take on a risk that they may not be able to manage when markets eventually suffer a downturn.

Manulife Investments offers a different solution to help investors get 100% prepared: the Manulife Yield Opportunities Fund led by Terry Carr, Chief Investment Officer for Canadian Fixed Income, Manulife Asset Management. Terry and the Fund’s portfolio management team put managing risk ahead of every decision they make. They're able to find fixed income opportunities anywhere in the world that "make sense" and don't introduce additional credit risk in the process.  This approach seeks to provide investors with the sustainable yield they require, while managing short term volatility. That’s different.

Income. Do it different.
