Financial Times Guide to Income Investing is the complete reference guide for all investors who want to earn more income--and more continuous, reliable income, too. Writing for income investors of all kinds, this book presents all the tools of the trade, and guides readers in choosing the approaches that are best for them. Financial Times columnist David Stevenson begins by reviewing the key financial concepts that every income investor simply must understand-- including the basics of risk, return, volatility, structure, and inflation. Stevenson systematically reviews today's simplest, safest, most 'mainstream' income products and funds, helping investors understand what they can and cannot expect to achieve through these investments. Next, he introduces higher-risk, less conventional strategies designed to pay higher income--and helps readers realistically assess the risks of pursuing these approaches.
