Income Investing: How to Get High Yield in a Low-Rate Environment

Marvin Appel, Signalert Asset Management LLC, President

Despite some increase in long-term interest rates in 2021, they remain near all-time lows. As a result, traditional safe, income-producing investments such as investment-grade bonds or bank CDs no longer pay enough to meet most investors’ needs. Even conservative investors are forced to take on risk just to achieve what were historically modest returns. Marvin Appel, president, Signalert Asset Management LLC, will teach you a strategy to achieve higher yields, manage risks and reduce taxes.
