Definition - What does Current Income mean?
Current income investment portfolios are designed to provide a steady flow of cash from securities, such as dividends, interests, and annuities. Since they emphasize regularity over profitability, they tend not to be high-yielding but low risk.
Insuranceopedia explains Current Income
Current income portfolios are reliable sources of income for retirees. With steady yields, they ensure a consistent cash flow that is not disturbed by market fluctuations.
Most of the money derived from current income portfolios come from conservative financial instruments, such as blue chips and annuities.
