Steve Renault

Founding Partner Middle Retirement

Steve is one of the stock market greats. Starting at 22 on the floor of the exchange, he moved his way up working with and against the industries best. Eventually, he became a brokerage firm owner, taking revenues from 3 million to 24 million in the first year, by trading billions of dollars in pension and mutual fund stocks. He understands the financial markets and their secrets.

Seeing the importance of living in the now and listening to his father’s words of wisdom, “When is enough, enough?” He traded his life of means to a life of meaning and began traveling the world with his family. He knows first hand what it means to be retired and the importance of depending on your investments.

Steve understands the negative and positive effects of financial investing, the pit falls and the disconnect.  He has dedicated his retirement to financial literacy and empowerment. “I want to give people the power to understand their money and how to make it work for them and not just their advisor and the investment industry.  I want to show people how to align their finances and their life so they can see their dreams as realities.”

Steve is also author of the book Mid-Life Crisis Retirement where he shares some of the industry’s secrets, demystifies the art of investing and helps people understand what they have today and can have in the future.

Trust...confidentiality and integrity was most critical when trading. We expected the best execution and only dealt with those that could fulfill our mandate. Steve was and is one of them.
