Founder and CEO of Forefront Capital, Brad Reifler, saw a need in the world of investments, and he filled it. Although, he himself is in the top one percent, he understands the investing needs of the ninety-nine percent, and is happy to share with them his understanding of the market. After retiring, Reifler’s father-in-law entrusted his life savings to Reifler which enabled Reifler to see firsthand the limited investment options that his father-in-law, and others like him, had. It was then that Reifler realized that the ninety-nine percent needed opportunity, help, and guidance in order to participate in the market. And, what is Reifler’s advice to the ninety-nine percent?
Reifler recommends that an investor should not invest all of his or her money in the market. In addition, Reifler believes it is important for investors to get to know who the people are that they have allowed to invest their hard-earned money. Finally, a person should have investment goals, and he or she should keep track as to how their investments are meeting those goals.
However, even Reifler understands that the financial market is not always precise. He himself invested money in a college savings plan for his daughters and ended up losing on the deal. However, overall he has had an extremely successful financial career. He has a degree in Economics and Political Science from Bowdoin College. After graduating, he went on to focus on global derivatives and in 1982 founded Reifler Trading Corporation. Since that time, he has enjoyed continued success in the financial sector and helped in the creation of several more companies. Be sure to follow Brad on Twitter @BradleyR.
