  • HYP

    A high yield portfolio is where you try and live off the dividend yield of a portfolio, and leave the capital invested. Typical stockmarket yields are lower than the 4% SWR rule of thumb, so a HYP portfolio tends to favour a basket mature companies paying a steady dividend, or investment trusts.

    Yield is also a function of price, it is easier to buy a HYP in a crash, and I started in 2009 which was a good time to start.
