Brad Reifler Focuses On Helping Middle-Class Americans To Access Broader Investment Opportunities

The host of a renowned television show “Money Monster,” Lee Gates, picks hot stocks. During a live broadcasting, Kyle Budwell, a disgruntled investor, storms on the show. While taking Gates hostage, he tells him that he followed his investment tips, but lost everything.

Lee pleads with Kyle. His longtime producer who is in the control room is communicating with him through an earpiece. Brad Reifler asserts that although Money Monster is a fictional movie, it talks much about Wall Street.

Wall Street zeroes in on accredited (wealthy) investors. This way, these individuals can invest in different opportunities, which are not accessible by non-accredited investors.

Brad Reifler, the chief executive officer and founder of Forefront Capital, has made it his duty to provide middle-class Americans with the investment opportunities provided to the 1 percent. Previously, he was aiding the wealthy to get wealthier.

According to Bloomberg, Brad Reifler argues that small investors face three major challenges, which are high management fees, access to investments and stock market risks. Brad posits that most firms on Wall Street charge high management fees irrespective of how the portfolio of their clients performs.

This way, brokers are making more money regardless of their client’s success, which is wrong. Crunchbase revealed that Brad Reifler goes ahead to say that for a long time, non-accredited investors have been provided with limited investment options. The government considers accredited investors more intelligent.

To this end, they are allowed to invest in private funds and hedge funds. The limited investment opportunities that are availed to non-accredited investors are correlated to the stock market. This means that they are highly volatile.

Brad Reifler asserts that he founded Forefront Capital with the objective of enabling small investors to save for their future. Through his visionary leadership, the company has been able to create several successful subsidiaries, including Forefront Partners and Forefront Advisory, LLC.

Previously, Brad founded Reifler Trading Corporation and Pali Capital. The former engaged in the independent futures market. When he started the corporation, he largely focused on discretionary accounts.

Later, he expanded to global derivative advisory, institutional research, execution services and information dissemination. He sold the company to the largest futures corporation in the globe, Refco Inc. Pali was a sell side broker focusing on the competitive equity market.

Brad Reifler Has Seen Real Stories From Money Monster

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. Learn more about Brad Reifler:

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.
