The report said: “Having a predictable and lasting income stream is crucial for paying bills and peace of mind” and claimed high-dividend stocks outperformed most other assets in periods of low or no economic growth. The 16-page report, Means, Ends and Dividends: Dividend Investing in a New World of Lower Yields and Longer Lives, said the “hunger for income” was being driven by the fact the number of people aged over 65 will triple to a global total of 2bn by 2050 and that people were generally living longer.
