Investment Matters

2. Adding the value of sustainable dividends

The importance of sustainable dividends (or distributions if from a trust) is often emphasised by your investment team.  Sustainable dividends provide an ongoing opportunity for reinvestment (including through down times in the market when it is good to put money to work, so to speak), and hence a compounding effect to the growth of your wealth.  (Or for retired clients, they form a part of their pension stream.)   Additionally, dividends speak to the financial health of a company, which, eventually, will be recognised by the market.
