The FTSE 100’s market crash has caused many of its members to offer relatively high dividend yields. Certainly, a number of large-cap stocks have paused their shareholder payouts. But some FTSE 100 shares continue to offer attractive yields, as well as dividend growth potential.As such, investing £5k, or any other amount, in a wide range of them today in a tax-efficient account such as an ISA for the long term could be a more effective means of generating a passive income compared to other assets such as cash and bonds.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 100 dividend yieldsAn uncertain outlook for the world economy means dividend cuts have been commonplace across the FTSE 100. In many cases, those companies are likely to reinstate their dividends as the economy’s outlook improves. But, in any case, there are a number of businesses that continue to experience solid financial outlooks. These are expected to maintain their dividend payments throughout 2020.Due, in part, to weak investor sentiment, many FTSE 100 shares currently offer high yields. In fact, it’s possible to generate an annual income return in excess of 5% from a basket of large-cap shares. Therefore, investors can use the current low price level of the index to their advantage, in terms of obtaining higher yields than were possible just a few months ago.Dividend growth potentialDividend growth has been strong across many FTSE 100 sectors over recent years. Although, in 2020 and even over the next couple of years, the rate of dividend growth may decline, over the long run, a resumption of inflation-beating dividend growth rates seems likely.Monetary policy stimulus has the potential to boost the economy’s outlook. Likewise, the global economy’s track record of recovering from every one of its previous recessions to post growth suggests the operating environments for many FTSE 100 businesses could improve. Therefore, buying a portfolio of dividend stocks today could generate rising income returns for investors over the coming years.Other opportunitiesThe landscape for income-seeking investors has become more challenging as a result of coronavirus. Other income-producing assets, such as Cash ISAs and bonds, now offer lower income returns due to a decline in interest rates to just 0.1%. With the Bank of England likely to maintain an accommodative monetary policy to boost the economy, there’s a lack of choice for income investors who are seeking to make a passive income.Therefore, while the FTSE 100 could experience a challenging period that includes paper losses for investors over the coming months, large-cap dividend stocks could be the most attractive means of generating a passive income. Over the long run, many of the index’s members could deliver dividend growth. This could make now the right time to buy a diverse range of them in a tax-efficient account such as an ISA. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

He also explained that exempting federally-insured credit unions from the bureau’s jurisdiction would allow the NCUA to “act as the primary agency responsible for the examination and enforcement of consumer financial protection laws for only six additional FICUs,” which, he added, would free up resources for the CFPB.The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) applauded McWatters’ letter.“NAFCU – from the bureau’s inception – was against the CFPB having direct oversight over credit unions and was the only financial services trade association to take that stance,” said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger, in a prepared statement. “NAFCU and its members thank Chairman McWatters for making this request directly to Director Cordray.”In the event that Cordray does not want to move forward with exempting federally insured credit unions from the bureau’s oversight, McWatters requested that the two agencies work together to conduct all examinations of those institutions jointly.

Yasmine Syed, the recently elected Republican town supervisor, raised several concerns with items on the agenda of the Niskayuna Town Board’s March 27 meeting. None of the four Democrats on the five-member town board (John Della Ratta, Denise Murphy McGraw, Bill McPartion and Lisa Nemza Weber) made any comments on anything raised by Syed. None. Yet, when the board proceeded to a vote, the four Democrats voted for each item and against Syed. Each item passed by a 4-1 vote.It’s fair to conclude that this four-member Democratic block on the town board has adopted a tactic intended to punish the Republican supervisor for having won the election. Unfortunately, town residents are also being punished. We have become collateral damage in this battle and are now no longer told why the four Democrats favor or oppose any item on which they are voting. If residents wish to again know why the Democrats are voting as they are, it seems we must vote Syed or the other four town board members out of office.Elmer F.
