The expected income from the portfolio over the next 12 months as a percentage of the total assets.
Portfolio yield is only a measure of how much income the portfolio is expected to produce. It doesn’t take into account any expenses, interest and tax that might be incurred. Though a higher portfolio yield might indicate that the company will pay a higher level of dividends, you shouldn’t assume that this will be case. The actual income received might also differ from the expected income.
