Describing a portfolio containing primarily fixed-income securities and blue chip stocks that pay high dividends. A current income portfolio provides a steady income to the portfolio holder. As such, a portfolio does not hold high-growth or start up stocks; it follows a relatively conservative investment strategy. Most commonly, current income portfolios are held by retirees and others who seek a modest (but still substantial) return at little risk.
