Our top LICs for income

ALF, Cadence, Djerriwarrh and WAM top the table for the best income.

Summary: The top five LICs for income are actively managed portfolios, as they take profit on a more regular basis than funds that buy and hold stocks. Portfolios that hold companies in the ASX20 will usually deliver above market average income year in, year out, whereas actively traded LICs will see dividends fluctuate more.

Key take out: LICs pay dividends out of dividends they receive from holdings as well as realised profits. Don’t get too excited about a large hit of dividends in your portfolio – preserve this for future gaps in dividend payments.
