The Wall Street Journal and other national publications have interviewed Arbor Wealth Firm Founder and Principal Margaret R. McDowell, ChFC, AIF regarding Arbor Wealth’s utilization of dividend-paying investments in client portfolios.  Is this, we wondered, the face of future investing.

Question: Why do you think Arbor Wealth’s emphasis on income investments is attracting attention from national publications?

Arbor Wealth: We have a reputation for investing in securities that provide income, and that’s a recognizable investing niche. We’ve been interviewed several times by the Wall Street Journal, by Jane Bryant Quinn for AARP, and by Investment Advisor Magazine. 

Question: Is this investment philosophy a national trend?

Arbor Wealth: It is now. We began focusing on income generation and dividend-payers many years ago.  It’s only recently become a buzzword in the investment advisory industry.

Question:  Why do you rely so heavily on income producing instruments for your clients?

Arbor Wealth: This is my 18th year in the investment advisory industry. There have been long stretches during my career, and during our nation’s economic history, when the S&P was flat.
