With attention on the growth of dividends globally, it is easy to forget that the domestic UK market offers a wealth of opportunities for those seeking an income from their equity investments. The UK remains one of the highest-paying and most consistent dividend markets in the world. Paying dividends is engrained in the culture of many UK businesses, which means that the market offers rich pickings for income seekers.
However, the UK market requires careful navigation. Dividends can be concentrated in certain areas, for example, and some dividend-paying companies may offer relatively little prospect of capital growth. Equally, the impact of political events brings short term volatility to the UK market, and the fund managers will discuss how they navigate this environment.
Hear BlackRock's approach to UK Income to understand how we ensure investors have the best chance of their income keeping pace with inflation, without sacrificing long-term capital growth.
