Product Description

Product Description

Financial Times Guide to Income Investing is the complete reference guide for all investors wanting their shares and investments to provide market beating — and continuous — income.

 

This book provides you with the necessary tools of the trade so you can work out the best strategy to follow guiding you through the mainstream, and not so mainstream, investment vehicles.

 

Beginning with an introduction describing the basics of risk, return, volatility, structure, inflation and investing, the book introduces the simplest and safest products and funds before moving on to those higher risk strategies that will pay the highest income.

From the Back Cover

‘David’s knowledge of the practical side of investing for income is second to none. This excellent book is a very readable resource for income investors of all levels.’

Dominic Picarda, Associate Editor, Investors Chronicle

 

 ‘David Stevenson skilfully pulls apart the jargon so favoured by some in the financial services industry to produce a robust and invaluable guide to producing a decent income from your investments. This is a book which should be read by everyone from the comfortably affluent to those with more modest wealth because seeking an income crosses the wealth brackets.’

Lawrence Gosling, editorial director of Investment Week

Is it possible to generate a decent income from investing in the stock market? Volatile markets, increasing regulation and variable interest rates certainly make it difficult to develop a profitable portfolio, but it can be done with some sound advice.  

The Financial Times Guide to Investing for Income is the definitive guide to using investments such as equities, bonds and derivative structures, as a source of income. It provides you with the necessary tools to work out the best strategy to follow. The book begins by describing the basics of risk, return, volatility, structure, inflation and investing. It then shows you the simplest and safest products and funds before moving on to higher risk strategies that will pay the highest income.

The Financial Times Guide to Investing for Income:

  • Provides an introduction to investing and the risks associated with investment capital growth
  • Illustrates the best way to organise your portfolio to provide a year-on-year increase in income
  • Explains key investing terms in direct  and straightforward language
  • Gives practical guidance on saving and investing strategies and addresses key dangers and risks

5.0 out of 5 stars Manage Your Own Money 6 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the last six months I have read a half a dozen books on investing. This is one of the best, the other being the Naked Trader. Investing for Income gives clear guidance to the different types of investment vehicles (equities, gilts, bonds, unit trusts, investment trusts, ETFs, etc) then shows you how to put together a portfolio and cut out the middle man. Has already paid me back the purchase price and more. Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 27 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David has a writing style which endears the reader to him. I personally learned a lot from this book and have already implemented some things after reading this. I have read David's other books as well. After reading all of these, I met an IFA and asked him so many questions that he almost thought I was some investment guru. I am no guru, but David's books certainly allow me to ask and speak intelligently about investment. Thank you David.
