The UK Equity Income sector has long been a favourite place for investors to stash their cash – it offers the investment holy grail of growth and income. But as finding income has become increasingly difficult in recent years, the sector’s numbers have dwindled.

Some 22 funds have been booted out of the sector because they have failed to meet the yield requirements, reducing the total number of funds in the sector by a fifth.

Among their number are the £1.3 billion Rathbone Income fund, the £1.7 billion Schroder Income fund and the Invesco Perpetual Income and High Income funds, which together hold more than £16.5 billion of investors’ money.
