Each month, to help you get to grips with ETFs and make the most of these low-cost, exchange-traded products, Morningstar’s ETF analysts walk you through their thinking on a specific area of investment.

These online webinars are free to attend and you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your desk. November’s webinar focuses on Generating Income with ETFs. Income is a crucial part of any investor’s portfolio, not least in the current environment of record-low interest rates.

In this webinar, which was held online at 4.00pm on Wednesda,y November 28, Morningstar's director of passive fund research Ben Johnson covered four key areas when considering ETFs in your search for income:

  • How we got to a low-yield world
  • Income, not for its own sake
  • Theory of yield relativity: why the highest-yielding investments don’t pay
  • What’s cheap, what’s not
