Chief Executive Officer of Forefront Capital, Brad Reifler became aware of the major problems small investors encounter when seeking investment opportunities, early in his career. For many years, he has worked diligently to create investment options for small investors, also referred as non-accredited by the Federal Government. Fictional movie, Money Monster illustrates parts of the truth about what really goes on at Wall Street and the challenges non-accredited investors should be aware of. What truths were portrayed in the movie about Wall Street is covered by Mr. Reifler in the major problems small investors encounter when seeking investment opportunities.
The majority of investors participating in Wall Street are high net worth individuals with incomes of $200,000 and higher. High net worth people are defined as accredited investors and given variety of investment options, whereas, investment options for small investors are limited. Brad Reifler shared three major problems small investors encounters; excessive fee charges, availability of investment options, and stock market risk. Most brokers charge enormous fees for managing clients’ investment portfolios, regardless of gain or loss performances. It is a big problem on Wall Street and can be devastating to small investors financially.
Another problem is the limited investment options available to small investors. The opportunities for non-accredited investors are few compared to those offered to accredited investors on Wall Street. The SEC definition of accredited investors has blocked the middle class and hard working Americans from participating in private equity and hedge fund investments. The final problem is the stock market risk, which is higher for small investors because of the limited options to diversify investments. Risks are normally minimized by including different options, such as stock trading, commodities, bond, and etc.
Brad Reifler has 34 years of expertise in the investment and banking industry. He became an entrepreneur in the early 1980’s, after establishing Reifler Trading Corporation. In the mid-1990’s, he founded Pali Capital and led the firm to success by reaching yearly revenues of $200 million. Mr. Reifler decided years back that he had to create investment opportunities for small investors. He formed the Forefront Income Trust that offers investment options to the 99 percent of Americans considered as non-accredited investors. Read more about Brad’s extensive career on Bloomberg.
