Balanced Income Strategy

Print

ThomasPartners® Balanced Income Strategy.

The ThomasPartners Balanced Income Strategy combines the firm's dividend growth strategy with fixed income investments. The strategy has a baseline allocation of 60% equities and 40% fixed income, which can be adjusted by the ThomasPartners Investment Team to help meet its three objectives.

  1. The first objective: monthly income.

    Wherever you are in life, it’s likely that one of your primary financial goals is to generate income—income that can help you live comfortably today or income that you can invest now and draw from when you retire. ThomasPartners Balanced Income seeks to provide monthly income by investing in companies with predictable dividends and interest-paying fixed income investments.

  2. The second objective: income growth.

    To assist in offsetting the impact of inflation, the ThomasPartners Balanced Income portfolio strategically invests within and allocates across dividend-growth companies and fixed income investments in an effort to grow the portfolio’s income over time.

    How are dividend-growing companies and fixed income investments chosen?

    Each company is carefully analyzed. Its dividend-growing track record—and its ability to sustain that growth in the future—is considered, questioned, and evaluated. And, once selected, the company is continuously reevaluated. If a company fails to meet ThomasPartners’ high standards, it’s eliminated.

    The firm's fixed income philosophy is risk-averse, with fundamentally driven positions chosen based on credit spreads and duration.

  3. The third objective: competitive total returns over time.

    Pursue the retirement you want with an investment strategy that’s built to prepare you for the years ahead. In addition to regular income and income growth, the ThomasPartners Balanced Income Strategy seeks to deliver competitive total returns over time through income generation and price appreciation. If you’re at a stage of life where you don’t need to withdraw your income, you can enjoy the power of compounding, since accumulated income can be reinvested in the ThomasPartners Balanced Income Strategy over time.
