Brad Reifler, the Journey to Starting the Forefront Management Group, LLC
It has been a long journey but Brad has finally made a mark in the finance and investment industry. So far, more than three investment firms including Reifler Trading cooperation, Pali Capital, and Forefront Management Group, can credit their immediate success to his determination and so can many others on whose management boards and steering committees he has served. Brad has over 30 years of experience in the investment and financial world that makes him one of America’s best financial minds.
How did he start?
Wikipedia shows that Brad graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from the Bowdoin College in 1981. Instead of turning to employment, he set out on establishing an independent career and founded the Reifler trading corporation, a company that dealt with the execution of global derivatives. As the company’s CEO, Brad steered it to unprecedented levels until the year 2000 when it was sold to Refco Inc.
With the experience he had gained with Reifler, Brad founded yet another company in 1995, Pali Capital, a broker-dealer with a keen focus on equity markets. He served as the company’s CEO between 1995 and 2008 during which time he steered it to achieve the excesses of $1 billion in commission income and expand operations to over four continents. His shrewd stewardship of Pali Capital demonstrated his mastery of the financial markets. This not only earned him a name but also saw him gain popularity and trust in the finance industry.
The journey to Forefront management group
After leaving Pali Capital in 2008 and buying his beautiful farm home, Brad set out to starting yet another company. In June 2009, he registered Forefront Management Group, LLC that has under its wings several other subsidiaries including Forefront Advisory and Forefront Capital Markets. He plans to use his financial knowledge and innovativeness in steering Forefront Management to such levels that could only be imagined for Pali Capital.
He has come up with very friendly and innovative strategies of getting the unaccredited investors, who make up to 99 percent of the general population, involved in the capital markets through education and transparency. What makes him and his strategies stand out is his high level of transparency and integrity. Brad wants Forefront to be seen as the safe place where persons can find investment options and save for the future. Brad has a popular following on Twitter, where he can be reached for financial commentary on most of the days issues.
