OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2013) - Bell Investment Advisors, (www.bellinvest.com), a Bay Area registered investment advisory firm, announced today that they are now offering the public a free white paper, Finding Substitutes for Traditional Bond Income in Your Portfolio. Bell Investment Advisors regularly offers free white papers and webinars as part of an ongoing educational series.

The paper relates a basic principle of economics: "the substitution effect" to investors' portfolios today. Matt King, CFA, Chief Investment Officer of Bell Investment Advisors, examines various types of income-producing assets to find the best candidates to act as substitutes for traditional bonds in an investor's portfolio.

King explains that because traditional bonds have become too expensive, investors should seek out income-producing alternatives. King discusses high-yield bonds, leveraged loans, high-dividend-paying stocks, among others as potential substitutes for traditional bonds.

 "Given today's historically low interest rates," states King, "our firm is providing this white paper as a resource for investors to learn more about bond alternatives, consider associated risks, and weigh the options."
