Investors should ramp up their search for income in 2019, according to Neil Dwane at Allianz, as dividends will be a more important part of investors’ total returns next year. And Dwane calls the FTSE 100 a prime market in which to go hunting for high-yielding bargains.

After a decade of easy money made in rising equity markets, there are headwinds on the horizon. Interest rates continue to creep higher, volatility has picked up and earnings growth is predicted to slow dramatically. As a result, “the re-rating of equity markets is over”, claims Dwane, global strategist at Allianz.
