Emerging market stocks have demonstrated ability and willingness to pay dividends consistently despite volatile times in recent years, according to a top-rated investor.

At a conference in London chaired by the industry body the Association of Investment Companies this week Omar Negyal, from JPMorgan, said income investors should consider emerging markets.

“Many years ago you would not be possible to look at this asset class for income. But they are suitable for income now, with sustainable pay-out ratios. Emerging market companies on average have had dividend pay-out ratios of 30% to 35% for many years now,” says Negyal, manager of the Bronze Rated JP Morgan Global Emerging Markets Income trust (JEMI).
