At a time when many servicemen are returning from the battlefields overseas, the challenges they’ve faced coming home have included transitioning into civilian employment and dealing with a Veteran’s Administration that’s had its issues.
But Brad Reifler, the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital has extended his generosity to help these returning veterans through a foundation he’s recently given to. That foundation is Easter Seals Dixon Center, a New York based veterans assistance foundation that helps returning veterans receive job training and education and connects them with healthcare providers.
Reifler is proud to have given this facility a $3 million donation that he hopes will touch the lives of many veterans and their families. Learn more about Brad Reifler: https://www.crunchbase.com/person/brad-reifler
Bloomberg said that Brad Reifler is an investment expert and entrepreneur that has been working hard to change public perception about the banking and wealth management industries. He has a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College and over 30 years in executive management.
He began in futures investing when he founded Reifler Trading Company, growing that company from a small discretionary account manager to a major global securities trading company. He founded Pali Capital about 10 years after starting the Reifler Trading Company, and this company became a highly acclaimed hedge fund management firm in its time and had offices in 4 different continents during the years it operated.
In 2010 Brad Reifler founded Forefront Capital, an alternative investment firm with a large rolodex of high profile clients.
According to PR News Wire, Brad Reifler’s work at Forefront Capital has consisted of evolving the company from an accredited investor firm to one that allows the 99% inside its doors. Brad Reifler believes that just because an investor isn’t a large income or Wall Street certified individual doesn’t mean they shouldn’t invest.
He knows the difficulty many middle class Americans face entering investing because he had once tried to invest his father’s lifesavings into a reliable IRA account, but he had few choices due to SEC regulations on non-accredited investors.
So after working with the SEC to loosen the regulations, Reifler began Forefront Income Trust, a public fund that now allows any investors to invest in even for as little as $1,000. But Reifler hopes this is just the beginning of a new investing movement.
