The Miton UK Multi Cap Income fund has provided 29.5% of income and 80.5% total return over 5 years. This performance has clinched the "most reliable UK income fund" for 2017, repeating 2016's feat.
The current yield of the fund is 4%.
According to an assessment by the wealth manager Sanlam, the fund has ranked 1st in a list of the most consistent income funds over the past 6 months. The ranking is based on:
- Income paid out
- Current yield
- Performance over the past five years
- The stability of returns
The Axa Framlington Monthly Income and Marlborough Multi Cap Income also scored highly, with both yielding 4.3%.
The Axa Framlington Monthly Income fund has returned 66.9% and paid out £27.60 per £100 invested over the past 5 years.
The Marlborough Multi Cap Income fund has returned 74.7% and paid out £30.20 per £100 invested over the same period, however, it has been ranked lower on the list due to the volatility of it's returns.
The largest income payout was delivered by the MI Celverton UK Equity Income fund, with the caveat that volatility was high.
