1) When you're young/beginner and you're looking at investing for the first time. Being a Financial Advisor, I've found that a year of starting my beginners of on dividend funds has been really encouraging for them, to see their returns come in month after month.

​

2) When you're old. Most of them will then transition into funds that have signficant growth, because dividend funds tend to be limited via bonds with leverage on the bonds itself or currency, or just REITs - either way, they don't tend to surpass a 9% mark, while going into equities gives you that chance. So as fun as it is to see dividends every month, you're not likely to use them as a young investor.

​

So when you're old, most people transition from their 80-20 Equity-Bonds into more bonds, and more fixed income, and by extension something that provides them with more dividends.

​

The best age/time is really about your scenario and risk appetite.

​

Fixed income is one of my investment specialties. I have funds that do 4.2% up to 8.66% annually, depending on your risk. You can always reach me if you'd like to explore.

but you must first understand how companies give out dividends (dividend policy). If the company still young and growing it is not very prudent to give out dividends when it can be injected back into company for higher rate of growth.

Surprisingly, I have discovered a Singapore stocks blog, where they are sharing amazing information about singapore stocks investment. And I found a information rich blog post on dividend stocks. i was wondering that you might be interested to check this list of dividend stocks. https://www.mmfsolutions.sg/blog/top-10-high-di...
