Worried about the State Pension? Here are 3 easy ways to build retirement income

first_img Image source: Getty Images. If you’re approaching retirement age and you have a low amount of savings (or perhaps even none at all), the thought of living off the State Pension in retirement probably worries you.Currently, the State Pension payout is just £168.60 per week – assuming you qualify for the full payout, which many people don’t – which equates to less than £9,000 per year. That’s not enough even for a basic lifestyle these days. According to the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA), individuals retiring today need at least £10,200 per year to be able to live a ‘minimum’ lifestyle.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…If you plan ahead though, and start building up passive income streams while you still have time, you could put your State Pension concerns to rest. With that in mind, here’s a look at three easy ways to build up extra income for retirement.Funds that pay dividendsOne of the easiest ways to build up income for retirement is to invest in a fund that pays dividends. You can find these kinds of funds on investment platforms such as Hargreaves Lansdown, AJ Bell, and Interactive Investor.There are a number of advantages to investing in funds for income. First, it’s less stressful than picking income stocks yourself as an investment manager does this for you. Second, it’s generally a lower risk strategy than buying individual stocks, because funds tend to be well diversified. Third, you can get started with a very small amount of money. For example, through Hargreaves Lansdown, you can start investing in funds with just £100.Overall, funds can be a very effective way of generating extra income for retirement.Investment trusts that pay income Investment trusts that pay dividends are another option to consider if your goal is to build retirement income. Investment trusts are similar to funds, however, they are traded on the stock exchange like regular stocks.Like funds, investment trusts take a lot of the stress out of investing. They also provide diversification. However, an added advantage is that many have low ongoing charges, which can make them more cost-effective in the long run.On the downside, you do have to pay trading commissions when you buy an investment trust. So they may not be ideal if you’re only looking to invest a few hundred pounds here and there.Income stocksFinally, investing in individual dividend-paying companies is another strategy that could be worth considering. The advantage of this approach is that you have more flexibility in terms of your investments.For example, if you want to capitalise on Royal Dutch Shell’s big dividend yield (currently about 7%) you can buy Shell shares. Similarly, if you like the look of Aviva’s colossal dividend yield (around 8% currently) you can pick up some Aviva shares.Of course, with this approach, there’s a higher level of company-specific risk. So you’ll want to diversify your money over many different companies in order to lower your overall investment risk. You’ll also have to factor in trading commissions.I wouldn’t let these issues put you off though. Given the attractive dividend yields on offer from many FTSE 100 companies right now, this approach to retirement income generation can be very rewarding.

McCombie There are a number of rumoured UK initial public offerings (IPOs) planned for 2020 and beyond. Darktrace, a cybersecurity startup, let its investors know last year that an IPO was its goal. Film buffs might like the idea of acquiring shares in Vue Cinemas and its 200 screen worldwide if it goes public. McLaren’s CEO has expressed a desire to take the company public.Being among the first shareholders in a hot, newly public company and potentially making a mint has an undeniable allure. Some IPOs have indeed made shareholders incredibly wealthy, but many others have left investors with nothing. On average, IPO investors could have probably done better.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What Jay R. Ritter found in his study of 1,526 IPOs from 1975 to 1984 was that a strategy of investing at the end of the first day of trading and holding for three years was inferior to investing in matching firms that were already listed. The IPO investors ended up with 83p relative to each £1 invested in the comparable firms.Ritter identified over-optimism in the prospects of the debutant firms as the chief cause of the underperformance in IPO investing, particularly when there are many IPOs happening in the latest hot topic – think dot.com companies at the turn of the millennium, or ride-hailing apps now. Investors end up paying too high a price.Maybe it’s the fear of missing out on the next big thing that makes any price seem like the right price for IPO investors, or perhaps it’s because the price was never right to begin with.Making it publicThere are more rules and requirements to comply with as a public company compared to a private one, and more people to keep happy. So, why would a company go public?Access to public markets for capital to expand is a good reason. Introducing the company to new customers through the publicity of the IPO process and a listing on an exchange is another.New rules for IPOs were established in July 2018. Potential investors now get to see an FCA-approved prospectus before any research from banks that are involved in the actual IPO. Those banks also have to allow unconnected researchers the same level of access to information that their in-house research teams get.Investors need to be cynical when reviewing material published by the company and its backers. Naturally, the company will present as rosy a picture of its prospects as possible because it wants to sell for as much as possible. Well-informed independent research will provide balance, but investors still need to do their homework.Perhaps a private equity firm has squeezed every last drop out of the company’s margins and wants to cash in now. Only careful scrutiny of the financial performance might reveal darker motivations for going public. Keep in mind that companies going for IPOs are typically younger and have short track records.Are IPOs right for me?Investing in IPOs is riskier than investing in the market in general. An investor looking for growth would probably be better off investing in existing growth companies. For income investors, IPO investing will rarely make sense.Any amounts committed to IPOs should be small, and you should be able to lose your stake without it affecting your long-term investing goals. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more
