Income generating securities typically involve a lower level of risk for investors, as predictable cash flows reduce such risk levels, while limiting large potential gains and losses to the security`s value. Bond coupons and dividends can be either distributed to fund investors or simply reinvested into the income fund, into other income producing securities.
