One consideration with investing for income may be that Funds which are designed with an income focus in mind may tilt the composition of investment returns away from capital and towards income generation. Depending on your investment goals and whether you are retired or a pre-retiree, it is always important to consider a diverse range of investments across a balanced portfolio to meet your financial investment objectives.
