Why earn passive income now?

Here’s why investing in fixed-income assets, such as bonds, makes sense.

Bond yields are at decade-highs
Interest rates are likely to stay high in 2024. High interest rates push up bond yields, meaning that bonds can provide investors with compelling yields at low risk.
Diversifies your portfolio
Fixed income assets, such as bonds, can offset some of the volatility of stocks in a balanced portfolio.
Generates income
Get periodic interest payment, which is especially beneficial now as short-term bond yields are at decade highs.
Preserves capital
The relative low risk of bonds helps preserve the value of your investments throughout market volatility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Basically, passive income is any income that you can earn while you sleep. There are two ways to generate passive income:

  1. Create royalty- or revenue-generating content, such as a blog, podcast, or online course. This strategy requires time and persistence.
  2. Invest into income-generating investments, such as dividend-yielding bonds or real estate. This strategy requires capital.

The Passive Income portfolio might suit you if you:

  • Want to preserve your capital while getting regular income payouts.
  • Are looking for assets that can do well during a recession, as bonds tend to rise first as markets price in a recession. 
  • Want to see less volatility in your investments, since income portfolios provide investors with regular payments. In the current interest-rate environment, fixed income is an attractive option thanks to its high yields.

Our Passive Income portfolio is available as part of our Flexible Portfolios offering. On the StashAway app, select “Flexible Portfolios” > “Start with a template portfolio” > “Passive Income”.

You can adjust it any time and make the portfolio unique to your preferences by adding or removing asset classes. For example, you could add exposure to Emerging Markets or local government bonds. Or you might want to reduce interest rate risk by adding Floating Rate Corporate Bonds. It’s free to make any changes, any time you want.

A portfolio with exposure to international income-generating assets helps investors minimise over-exposure to any single currency or geography, which can reduce volatility in their portfolio over time.
