Income Focused Retirement Investors Have to Say:
I have followed Steve's system for many years. It focuses on acquiring solid assets with generous yields, methodically and aggressively skimming off profits, and reinvesting in similar high quality assets. Steve categorizes assets in a novel and enlightening way. Taken all together, the results are an easy system to self-manage, reliable returns, and piece of mind. Some of our assets are managed by a professional financial management firm. The firm consistently underperforms this system — even if the firm didn't charge a management fee, this system beats their results in good years and bad years.

As co-creators of retirement income, we put ours with Steve in 2008. We have monitored, and then smiled at the healthy year-by-year growth of investments in Steve's targeted Closed End Funds. Over that time, we credit a steady stream of dividends for an income growth rate fluctuating between 8 - 12%. These dividend-inspired rates have been largely unaffected by market ups and downs. This retirement income strategy - exploiting the constancy of dividends - has been an investment re-education for us, away from the dizzying pitfalls of mutual fund and stock investments. We highly recommend that the reader study Steve Selengut's strategies and put the process into operation.

Exactly what I was searching for: A strategy to self-manage my income portfolio with accessible investment vehicles using a taxable online brokerage account. Steve's strategy has guided me to bridge the multiyear gap to access my retirement accounts at 59.5 without selling a share. With the results so far, now planning to NOT touch my IRA until RMD time. More than likely the "secrets" found in "Retirement Money Secrets" will allow me to convert most of my IRA to Roth before then!
I knew Steve and trusted his integrity and judgement well before he started managing peoples' portfolios. As a DIY myself, I could never match the returns that Steve was accomplishing. Steve introduced me to his practical concepts and approach in Closed End Fund investing. Since then, I have had annualized returns between 9 - 18% in my portfolio, and the capital gains were outstanding. Even during corrections, I still receive retirement income monthly give myself a very comfortable retirement. Serious investors, and newbies who want to maximize their returns, should study Steve Selengut's strategies and put them into action.

I am a 36-year experienced investor. I have been an active trader for 15 years and have utilized Closed-End Funds for 14 years, ever since I read Steve's Book, "The Brainwashing of the American Investor". Following Steve's investment strategy utilizing CEF's can make the least knowledgeable investor a winner. CEF's pump out a steady flow of cash, and the normal ups and downs of the market allow an investor to reap capital gains. You too can amass wealth if you follow Steve's strategy!

I started in the stock market in 1998 as a day trader in options. Years later I moved more toward income investing and targeted profit taking. CEFs are a main part of my portfolio, but I also invest in BDCs, REITs, PREFs, Babybonds, etc. I am totally DIY, and I run a high dividend Facebook group of 5600 Dutch language investors. I do the same as Steve teaches his followers and am no longer focused on portfolio market value. The only thing that matters is the growing cash flow and working capital from income investing and profit taking. Over the past seven years, I managed to double my dividend income to the point that I can live on it easily. It’s Income Focused Retirement Investing for me.
