As an investment advisor and financial executive, Brad Reifler took an interest in one of this last year’s top box office hits Money Monster. Reifler discussed how the storyline in the film is actually one that many middle class investors can relate to because far too often many investment companies are more interested in profiting off of investment advice and decisions instead of actually helping investors meet important goals such as securing their future and saving for major life expenses. So Reifler offered three solutions to help investors avoid meeting the money monster.
Bloomberg revealed to us that Brad Reifler said that first investors should look to other investing resources besides just stocks and the stock market in general. Reifler certainly doesn’t call on investors to avoid the stock market as it affords many opportunities, but he does believe investor portfolios should be diversified well beyond simply the stock market.
Secondly, Brad Reifler says that investors need to do careful research on the companies they choose to manage their investments to make sure they have a track record of proven results and solid company management. And then finally Reifler tells investors to stay focused on why their investing and not to deviate from their ultimate goals.
According to Crunchbase, Brad Reifler began his investing career not long after completing his bachelor’s degree at Bowdoin College. He started an independent futures investing company called Reifler Trading Company, a company that grew globally and was later merged with Refco Inc.
He attracted many accredited executives and investment banking clients at his next two companies, Pali Capital and Forefront Capital and soon had made quite a name for himself as a successful portfolio manager. Two experiences in his life changed some of his business management philosophies over the years.
Back some years ago he had tried to open a college savings investment fund for his 2 daughters’ future education, but the fund had actually lost money by the time it was to mature. He also tried to help his father save for retirement through opening a good IRA account for him, but the options for investing his fathers money were limited because his father didn’t have accreditation.
According to PR News Wire, So Brad Reifler opened a new subsidiary at Forefront Capital called Forefront Income Trust directed at the 99% of unaccredited middle class Americans. Today anyone can invest in this public fund starting at only $1,000.
