The importance of decent investment yield – especially in volatile times
> Assets with decent and sustainable yields are attractive in an environment of return volatility as they provide greater return certainty.
> Bank term deposit rates have collapsed, so it makes

> Dividends tend to grow and be more stable than term deposits over time. The key for an investor is to work out what matters most: stability in the value of their investment or a higher/more stable income flow.
