Episode 70 – Generating income from your investments with Michael O’Neill from Investors Mutual

With interest rates at all-time lows and likely to drop further, how do you generate reliable income your portfolio? Many people are looking to the share market.  To help us gain an understanding of the current market, my guest today is Michael O’Neill, Portfolio Manager at Investors Mutual Limited. Investors Mutual Limited is an Australian-based Equities Fund Manager. Michael explains increasing popularity of investment strategies which aim to generate income above the usual dividend stream paid by Australian companies. He also shares his view on the sustainability of the big four bank dividend policy.

And stay tuned to the end of the episode for my Propellerhead of the Week segment to learn how the Get Reminded App can help you settle contracts, policies, and other documents before you get penalised.
