Steven R. Selengut, author of The Brainwashing of the American Investor: The Book that Wall Street Does Not Want You to Read, has been in the financial services industry for more than forty years. He started investing while employed in a life insurer's pension investment department. At age 25, he gained responsibility for a modest trust portfolio and began his trading career using the working capital model. Selengut's twelve-year adventure in financial services produced an appreciation for the Wall Street environment that helped him fine tune his unique investment strategy. The program's success propelled him into early retirement and a new career as a private investment portfolio manager. He developed a unique cost-based approach, with individually managed investment portfolios, low annual fees, and commissions to an uninterested third party.
