Mind the Money Monster

Back in May, a new movie came out showcasing the hurdles small-time investors can face when attempting to dive into the investment markets on Wall Street. The movie is “Money Monster” and while it is fiction, some of the issues it touches on are not. Some of them are just as much an issue in the real world as they are in the world of Money Monster.

Forefront Capital is a financial service firm spanning the globe. It provides access to investments usually reserved for the 1% who can afford all the minimum requirements for all investment options. Most of the population doesn’t make enough in a year or have the required net worth to be an “accredited” investor, and according to creator and CEO Bradley Reifler, the majority in the investment world doesn’t believe the people who can’t meet that requirement are smart enough to invest in products with higher risk. This heavily limits the opportunities of the average American. Reifler believed that was wrong.

Cue Forefront Capital. Founded in 2009 by Reifler himself, he gives you the opportunity to invest in the higher-risk opportunities at a lower risk to yourself: your investment can be as little as $2,500. Of course, no investment is entirely risk free, but the people working at Forefront Capital have a vested interest in your investments: they don’t make money unless you do.

Reifler has been working in investments for more than three decades, so he knows his stuff. In 1982, he founded the Reifler Trading Corporation, which ran well until it’s sale in 2000 to Refco, a company founded by his own grandfather. Reifler served as CEO of Pali Capital, another company of his own, for the thirteen years between 1995 to 2008, where he earned the company millions of dollars in profits and expanded his reach through the US, the UK, and Australia, learning how to work Wall Street for the qualified rich.
