U.S. News & World Report: "Q&A: Fixed-Income Investments and the State of the Market"

Coryanne Hicks  | November 25 , 2020

Tom Stringfellow, Chief Investment Officer at Frost Investment Advisors, discussed with U.S. News & World Report what advisors and investors can do to navigate today’s unpredictable market. 

Fixed-income instruments should provide some diversification against any further volatility in the equity markets in addition to a source of liquidity for income needs. The important consideration for investors and savers, however, is to focus on quality, shorter maturities and where possible, active management to help navigate around future interest shifts.

For investors in need of a higher income stream, one suggestion is to consider a diversified portfolio of both fixed-income and dividend-paying stocks: The former providing a source of liquidity and diversification with the latter providing a higher income stream and the potential for appreciation. The risk of course is always the potential for unexpected market swings.
