Forefront Income Trust, a new initiative from Brad Reifler and his company Forefront Capital, seeks to even the playing field between accredited and non-accredited investors.
Reifler has long realized that accredited investors, those with a million dollar net worth excluding their primary residence or with an income north of $200,000 per year for the previous two years, have a definite advantage over those not accredited. After his father-in-law retired, Reifler recognized the lack of investment opportunities compared to his accredited clients and this was the impetus for the Forefront Income Trust.
Reifler is a lifelong entrepreneur as self stated on About.me, whose solo career began in the early 1980’s with his first company Reifler Trading Company (RTC). The company controlled hundreds of millions of dollars and would eventually be purchased in 2000 by the largest futures company in the world Refco Inc. Prior to selling RTC, Reifler also founded Pali Capital in 1995 which focused on credit analysis and derivative structures and then educated traders on the execution of the optimal strategy. Reifler was the CEO of Pali for 13 years and during this time the company did in excess of $1 billion dollars in commission income with offices situated on four continents.
After years of helping large institutions, Reifler decided in 2014 that he needed to focus his attention on the 99 percent. These are people that up to this point have not had the same investment opportunities as those investors that are accredited.
Thus was born the Forefront Income Trust, which assists non-accredited investors in obtaining and managing higher yield investments. In an effort to ensure that nearly everyone can participate, the trust only requires an investment of $2500.
Reifler has said that he wants the Forefront Income Trust to be known as a safe vehicle that can bring complex investments to everyone so that they can save for their futures, without first having to be an accredited investor. While Brad has freely given out investment advice before, this definitely marks another turning point in an already amazing career.
