Brad Reifler is someone who believes that investing shouldn’t only be for rich people. He believes that with all the information available and a cautious middle class that non-accredited investors should have opportunities to invest in other places besides the stock market. In fact, in his review of the movie Money Monster he believes that not having more options is what has hurt middle class investors, so his company Forefront Capital is working to lighten the regulations that have been placed on these investors.
Brad Reifler says investors can be successful if they follow a few tips. First, he says they shouldn’t merely invest in the stock market because investing all your money there can be very risky. There are other funds out there that have high yields, but that are also safer when it comes to your money. Second, he says you should do your research on the company you plan to invest with to make sure that they’re trusted by others who’ve invested there, and to make sure they don’t just simply make a profit whether the advice they give you is good or not. And third, Reifler says the best plan is to have an investment goal and just stick to that goal at all times.
Brad Reifler’s career began after he graduated with a degree in economics from Bowdoin College and founded Reifler Trading Company in 1982. Reifler was very knowledgeable in the markets and driven to succeed, so he took Reifler Trading Company from being a discretionary accounts manager to a large global derivatives and futures investment company. 13 years after founding Reifler Trading, he started Pali Capital which became a sell-side equity investment company and hedge fund manager. The company made over $1 billion in income and had offices spread across the world. Reifler closed Pali Capital in 2008 and built Forefront Capital which has created investment opportunities attracting some of the biggest fortune 500 and fortune 1000 companies to its rolodex.
Brad Reifler has recently sought out unaccredited investors to invest with his company because he understands their importance in the marketplace. He had once tried to invest his father’s lifesavings in a good IRA account so that they’d make a profit for when his father retired. But he found out that his father being unaccredited limited his options. So he started up an investment opportunity at Forefront where anyone could invest for as little as $1,000. Reifler hopes to open even more doors for the 99% of Americans by seeing regulations lightened in the coming years.
