Buy contrarian income with JOHCM UK Equity Income

The Bank of England (BoE) recently raised interest rates for the first time in a decade, but this was only a modest increase from a very low base, meaning that investors still cannot rely on cash to get a decent income. If you have an investment horizon of at least five years and can go up the risk curve, then an equity income fund is likely to provide a better income. And JOHCM UK Equity Income (GB00B95FCK64), which has a good long-term performance record and an attractive yield of over 4 per cent, looks like a particularly good option.
