Mike Higgins, a retired company director, is looking for a steady income stream from his SIPP and ISA portfolios.

Higgins has been retired for just over five years, and has invested both his SIPP and ISA allocations in a range of investment trusts, equity income funds and bond funds. To date, he has been happy with the performance.

“I’ve get a reasonable income from these funds,” he said. “I’m lucky in that I have a good company pension, but this additional income helps cover day-to-day costs and ensures we don’t have to scrimp on luxuries, such as holidays.”
