With dividends set to slump between 15 and 35 per cent this year, where should the income investor look? There are a few bright spots and safe havens amid the gloom, but on the whole it’s a pretty tough time as global lockdowns hit global dividends.

Jane talks about the factors influencing payout decisions and discusses what to consider when investing during a pandemic. 

Also in this episode Christian looks at the Chancellor’s candid recession warning; the government’s new post-Brexit tariff regime; and the latest lending figures from the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.
