As we close out 2017, We look back on our beginnings in early 2016 and what our goal was: to find yield in a yieldless world. And while there are over 150 offerings on SA, we are number 5 for a reason: we do not sacrifice yield generation for excessive risk. Some services will try and earn you an extra percentage of yield at any cost- exposing their investors to absurd amounts of risk. Our portfolio is up to 30% less risky than the S&P 500.
Yield Hunting: Alternative Income Opportunities is a full-service retirement income offering that is devoted to helping members construct a solid portfolio of high-yielding securities. We utilize fixed income CEFs, muni's, and baby bonds, among other investment vehicles to generate income while mitigating the risk on the downside from adverse and identifiable risks.
Do to increased fixed costs, including data services and personnel support, we will be increasing the price of our service for new subscribers only. All others will be grandfathered in at their current rate for the life of their subscriptions.
Rates as of January 1, 2018:
Keep in mind this is still an overwhelming value as you get access to a top tier wealth and investment advisor. Elsewhere this type of service would cost 1% or more annually.
What Yield Hunting offers:
1.) Retirement Income Coaching on Building an Income Stream from your Portfolio
Our team researches the best income producing securities within the closed-end fund, business development companies, and other fixed income opportunities.
Our Core Portfolio is the basis of the service. In terms of volatility, the Core Portfolio sits almost exactly in between the two indices. However, we think over the next several years we will be able to meet or exceed the S&P 500 index while taking on half (or less) of the risk.
Our Core Portfolio has 1/3 the risk on NAV of the S&P 500 and is more in line with the risk of the Barclays AGG index.
We also supplement those positions with dividend paying equities in REITs, small caps, and other high-yield stocks. Our goal is to produce an income stream that can create a high single-digit yield while protecting principal and minimizing risk in an easily replicated portfolio for subscribers.
2.) Our Investment Marketplace Service
On a monthly basis subscribers will receive:
· Monthly Newsletter - outlines our take on the latest market conditions and global news

Yield Hunting: Alternative Income Opportunities For Retirement
Alpha Gen Capital started Yield Hunting in April 2016 with one purpose in mind: to find yield in a yieldless world. While some subscription services will find yield at any cost, we pride ourselves on the fact that our core portfolio can generate a roughly 8% yield while exposing investors to one third the risk of the S&P 500. Our one-year trailing return through the end of November is 20.15%. We utilize fixed income CEFs, dividend paying stocks, munis, BDCs, baby bonds, among other investment vehicles to generate income while mitigating the risk on the downside from adversbe and identifiable risks. Prices go up Jan. 1, so lock in the current price today. Current members lock in the rate for the life of their membership and never have to worry about a price increase.
