Since you state "generate", I assume you want the principle to always remain. "Moderate" level of risk is too vague and we would need to know a lot more about you to give you proper feedback.


If you are not concerned about leaving any principle to your estate, you could easily do an immediate annuity (think of it like a pension) and get 6-7% guaranteed for life - and in many cases, you would still have principle left over even if you lived into your 90s.
