About the session

This year, Endowus is raising the payout targets for the Endowus Income Portfolios. Their latest payout target ranges are: 5% to 6% for the Stable Income portfolio, 5.5% to 6.5% for the Higher Income portfolio, and 3.5% to 4.5% for the Future Income portfolio.

In 2022, all three Endowus Income Portfolios performed in line with expectations in spite of the turbulence. With the portfolios consistently meeting their payout targets, investors in the Endowus Income Portfolios enjoyed stable, consistent cash flows throughout the year.

The three portfolios are designed to meet real-world income needs across different life stages — whether you’re a retiree seeking passive income, a working adult with a family to support, or a young adult with major life goals. They offer three different levels of passive income and potential for capital appreciation.

Join our Head of Investments, Sean Wong, together with Investment Lead, Yulin Liu, Investment Lead as they explain:

  1. The new higher payout targets for the Endowus Income Portfolios
  2. Which of the three Endowus Income Portfolios works best for your life stage
  3. Why more attractive valuations await long-term fixed income investors
