Dividends have provided long-term investors with a major part of their returns, as well as proving a source of income.
But picking dividend shares isn’t just about opting for those with the highest yield. A dividend needs to be sustainable, robust, and preferably rise over time.
So where can you find the best income shares?
Justin Urquhart Stewart, of Seven Investment Management joins Simon Lambert, of This is Money, on the Investing Show to explain where to invest for the best dividends, looking at countries, sectors and individual companies.
Also on this fortnight’s show, Simon, Richard Hunter, of Wilson King IM, and Nick Batsford, of TipTV, take a look at whether the FTSE 100 can continue its strong form after starting 2017 with a record-breaking run of fresh closing highs.
