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.
On 14th September 2016, the Atlanta Hawks basketball & Entertainment LLC (AHBE) sued New Hampshire Insurance Company for breaking terms of contract on the settlement of claims made by Danny Ferry. Danny Ferry, former general manager of the company, filed the lawsuit on September 13 at the Superior Court in Fulton County. The insurance company was said to work under a deal to cover losses due to employment practices such as wrongful termination and workplace torts. AHBE had given the insurance company (AIG) a notice that Ferry had confirmed that they were not covered; this was on April 2, 2015.
On June 22, 2015, the six-year contract that had started in 2009 worth $18 million came to an end after a buyout agreement between Ferry and AHBE. The spokesperson of the present Hawks management confirmed that there was a complaint, and the major parties involved were presently not part of Hawks. Information derived from the lawsuit state that AIG had refused not only to accept that the policy had been triggered, but also to participate in defending the claims or accept coverage. The lawsuit was looking for an additional 50 percent penalty for the losses incurred.

After all, this is one of the most important aspects of fashion.
One of the reasons that it is important to be able to save money is that clothes do cost money. People often feel lost when it comes to clothing because they often see that the clothes that they truly admire tend to be out of their reach when it comes to prices. To make things worse, if they find any cheap alternatives, they are nowhere near as durable. Then there is the question of ethics for businesses that are involved in selling high fashion pieces for lower prices.
Fortunately, Fabletics is involved in ethical measures to provide fashion at lower prices for people that are looking to upgrade their wardrobe. They make sure that they have all of their designers and developers inside the house. Therefore, the workers are surely taken care of in the best way. The way that Fabletics helps people save money relies on membership, analytical data, and removing any unnecessary involvement. Then there are the promotions they regularly run. While some people may be overwhelmed and intimidated by these promotions, they are great ways to save money.
For those that are interested in the promotions run by Fabletics, it is important to act fast and make sure that they take advantage of the products that are on sale during the promotion. For one thing, these sales and promotions go fast. Supplies often run out quickly during promotions. This is why it is important to connect with Fabletics so that one can be notified of the next promotions.
Nationwide Title Clearance, Inc., based in Palm Harbor, Florida is one of the largest document processing organizations in the world. Its track record and reliability is so outstanding that eight out of ten of the country’s retail banking and mortgage companies use Nationwide for their document processing.
When it comes to locating and verifying mortgage abstracts, liens, and titles, accuracy and speed are the high water marks that everyone looks for. Nationwide has the capacity of locating and verifying records from any county in America, no matter if it is located digitally, or as a paper file, as many of those records are still stored.
What is remarkable about the results that Nationwide has been able to achieve is that their accuracy record is over 99.8 percent with a mistake ratio of less than 1 percent. This is almost impossible to achieve given the number of records that the company processes.
The reason a company the size of Nationwide can get the results that they do is that of the level of technology that the company embraces and the training and competency of its employees. Also, they are exposed to additional training that can help them advance in the company by learning more and more about the company and the industry.
Nationwide has a low turnover rate too, as employees stay with the company. A recent declaration by The Tampa Bay Times cited a study conducted by an independent source that stated that for four out of the last five years, Nationwide employees voted that Nationwide was included in the top 100 employers in the nation.
John Hillman, the CEO of Nationwide recently stated that one of the biggest problems in the document industry is inaccuracies and sloppy handling of the delivery of the same. The remedy is the responsibility of the companies themselves. As he states, we as companies should set our objectives at very high levels, and then measure up to them in a very public way. This would solve the inaccuracies and compliance issues very quickly.
The mission statement of Nationwide is to deliver the highest level of accuracy in the document location and verification process so that mortgage companies and homeowners have the right information for mortgage commerce to exist while at the same time, protecting the land records of our nation.
The Waiakea water brand has grown well over 4000% since it first debuted in the market back in 2012. When this water brand first emerged in 2012 it had to struggle to make a name for itself in an already saturated beverage market.
Founder Ryan Emmons was a young man who was about 18 during that time. He saw an opportunity with the fresh water that was running off the Mauna Loa volcano. This water source was already being processed by a plant but it was on such as small scale.
Now, Emmons has managed to get a hold of this plant and used it to secure the water that falls from the volcano. He then has this high quality H20 transported and shipped to the Kea’au aquifer.
Once it arrives Waiakea water is processed before being transported to the mainland U.S.A. According to Crunchbase, after it reaches the U.S., Waiakea Water is supplied to over 900 stores throughout the countries. At least 30 states are selling this water brand to consumers. Learn more about more Waiakea Water: http://www.ladistco.com/products/drinks/water/waiakea-hawaiian-volcanic-water/
Having access to the Kea’au water plant was instrumental with Emmons success within this business. Without it, he would not have been able to get his idea off the ground.
Emmons not only had access to major plants and shipping systems he also has a solid and dependable source of drinking water at his disposal. Emmons access to the Mauna Loa volcanic waters ensures his success in the world of business. He has exclusive control over this area. He makes sure that no other company can come in and share his water source.
Other people who are a part of the bottled water beverage business within Hawaii also back up Emmons. They realize that he is on to something good. Emmons is grateful for the help.
Truthfully, he could not be successful within this business on his own. Waiakea is constantly growing by leaps and bounds.

I’ve had such a hard time with my financing company because it seems as if they only want to keep me in debt. I got my loan almost 2 years ago, and I was paying on time every month. When the end of the month came, I knew my payment were going to be on the first of the month, so I made sure to have the money in my account, so I would make my payment on time. It was only when things started going awry at my job that I started falling behind on payments, but it was only three payments, but the financing company certainly made me pay for it.
They gave me one fee after another, which easily added $150 to each late payment onto my total. Even when I got caught up, they still made things hard for me, I decided it was time to refinance. I let them know I was going to work with Ignition Financial because I had heard about them through a friend, but my financing company still wouldn’t work with me to give me a lower rate.
I went to their offices to speak with a professional about my refinancing choices, and it turns out that my credit was a lot better than my previous financier led me to believe. I haven’t checked on my credit in a while, but finding that the good credit I had would allow me to get lower monthly payments may be so happy. The best thing is that Ignition Financial works with several lenders, giving me several choices of which lender would be the best for me.
I was looking for a lower price and a way to slash my payments, and I was also looking for terms that would be agreeable. I didn’t want a lender who was going to stockpile me with tons of fees if I happened to fall behind, and I was able to find the perfect lender with Ignition Financial. It was the end of the month when I refinanced the car, which allowed me another month before I had to make my first payment, which gave me a quick break.
I also learned that Ignition Financial has coverage plans that will keep my entire car covered and protected in case of emergencies, collision that results in irreparable damage, and even protection on my loan. This gap coverage is worth the cost and gives me a piece of mind that I never had when I only had my regular insurance, which wouldn’t cover all the things that the gap coverages will cover. I smile like never before when I drive my car because I’m truly protected against the elements, and it’s all thanks to Ignition Financial.
