Brad Reifler has always had advice for various people on how to invest in funds that work for them and how to pick the right fund management company. He’s now reaching out to former military members and offering them a chance to invest in special funds as well as finding good jobs and finding healthcare.
The way he’s done this is through partnering with Easter Seals Dixon Center, a job and healthcare services agency for returning veterans. Reifler contributed $3 million to the center and made the Chairman, a retired COL David Sutherland happy about the decision to support the veterans. Reifler hopes that together the two companies can make access to veterans services much easier in the coming future.
Bloomberg revealed that Brad Reifler is currently the CEO of Forefront Capital Advisors, LLC but he has started several other investment firms. The first one he started after getting his bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College was Reifler Trading Company.
This company managed different global derivatives and private equity as it grew into a major futures company. Reifler sold the company named for him to Refco about 16 years after starting it, and in 1995 he started his second company Pali Capital.
This was a special trading and investment company that allowed advisors and investors to meet their goals through a strategic plan that Reifler put together. Pali Capital did extremely well and started offices in four different continents. But after dissolving that company Reifler started Forefront Capital in 2010.
According to Crunchbase, Brad Reifler brought many investment banks and Wall Street executives into Forefront Capital’s portfolio management list and had built the most successful company yet, but he wasn’t content to only advise clients in the 1% of investors.
He wanted to serve clients like his father who wanted to invest his small amount of lifesavings in an IRA not tied to the stock market but had few places to go since he wasn’t accredited. So in 2014 Brad Reifler introduced Forefront Income Trust, an investment branch of the company that allowed unaccredited investors to join investing in a public fund for as little as $1,000.
Reifler wants everyone to be able to get started diversifying their portfolios even if not having a high income makes them a slightly bigger risk.
