Can Dividends Immunize Your Portfolio Against a Recession?

Mark Noble
Srikanth Iyer

With record inflation, a possible recession looming, volatility plaguing equities and persisting weakness in bonds, how can investors “immunize” their portfolios against the threats and challenges of today’s marketplace? Mark Noble, Executive Vice President of ETF Strategy at Horizons ETFs is joined by Srikanth Iyer, Managing Director and head of i3 Investments of Guardian Capital to discuss how a dividend-focused strategy – with lessons from Warren Buffet – can help investors avoid the traps of high-flying stocks while outpacing inflation through attractive dividend income strategies. Mark and Srikanth cover how rate hikes, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the lessons of previous decades are informing the economic cycle right now and how advisors and investors can tactically incorporate data, artificial intelligence and ETFs to give their portfolios a needed booster shot against what’s ailing the investment landscape today.
