If you’re someone who closely follows top box office hits each year, you may have seen one of the most highly acclaimed films, Money Monster. The movie is about the disadvantages many middle class Americans face when hearing so-called experts give investment advice, and investment expert Brad Reifler weighed in on the movie’s story.
Brad Reifler says it’s all too common for brokers and managers to take advantage of investors by making a profit regardless of whether investments gain or lose money. He has given tips that he hopes help investors, and he’s taken steps at his company, Forefront Capital to help investors as well.
Brad Reifler warns about the dangers of only investing in stock market funds and advises investors to look at other vehicles instead of the stock market.
And he says when investors have a plan to reach certain goals when investing, they need to just stick to those goals and not deviate from them. Reifler brings well over 30 years of investing experience to the table.
According to Crunchbase, Brad Reifler started out at Reifler Trading Company, an independent futures investment firm he founded sometime after graduating from Bowdoin College. He managed that firm for nearly 20 years before it was merged with Refco, Inc.

He founded Pali Capital in 1995, a hedge fund management firm that had a specialized investment package that his fund managers and investors executed in ways that met their needs. In 2008, he founded Forefront Capital where he’s recently included Forefront Income Trust as a subsidiary company.
Forefront Capital went from catering exclusively to fortune 500 and top 1% wealthy clients, to now opening up to unaccredited middle class investors.
This move by Brad Reifler was inspired by a life experience when he had once tried to invest his father’s lifesavings into an alternative fund but had trouble doing so because of lack of accreditation.
So he’s helped open a public fund at Forefront that now lets investors invest in specialized funds for IRAs and Funds Shares for as little as $1,000.
