If you need a regural income from your investments, you should look for stocks/bonds that give you periodic dividends/distributions.

If you invest in an ETF Portfolio, with low cost fees and very little maintenance needed, you can actually build your financial freedom path.

Annual Returns are calculated assuming the reinvestment of dividends. They are also calculated on the hypothesis of a yearly rebalancing of the portfolios (at the beginning of the year)

Returns refer to investiments in US Dollars.
