Brad Reifler Reveals an Interesting Investment Trust

Posted on July 20, 2016

Brad Reifler has had a distinguished and successful career in the financial world. He has gained great prominence as the CEO of Forefront Capital, a company he founded. Reifler has worked in the financial world for many years. He is not someone who has grown static in his approach to running his firm. This is reflected in the new investment vehicles he is providing to middle class investors.

The arrival of the new Forefront Income Trust shows Brad Reifler and Forefront Capital are strongly committed to expanding options to non-accredited investors. Accredited investors are those with significant amounts of money and are allowed to put their funds into riskier – and potentially lucrative – investments. Reifler has gone on the record, via Twitter, to state he previously focused very heavily on these wealthy investors. Today, he is more interested in helping the “99%” access new avenues for investing.

Reifler points out the troubling fact that the average middle class investor has only about $6,000 in savings. It goes without saying this amount of money is far too low to retire on. Nor is the amount of money anywhere near adequate to handle emergencies or other fiscal calamities. Brad Reifler cannot promise any miracles, but he has been able to develop a new way for investors to put their money to use.

Details about the Forefront Income Trust have been published in Yahoo! Finance. The trust does sound very interesting. The Forefront Income Trust can be accessed with a minimum investment amount of $2,500. $2,500 is definitely a more reasonable amount for middle class investors than the $25,000 or $50,000 minimum investments required of many accredited investor vehicles.

Interestingly, the assets in the trust are “not correlated into the stock market”. Reifler has publicly suggested many investors put too much of their money into the stock market and do not diversify enough. This investment trust seeks to remedy such a problem. Reading up on the trust is definitely advisable to those who wish to learn more.

Forefront Capital Could Help You Get Ready For College

Posted on February 02, 2016

There is absolutely no question that college is getting more expensive each year. Worse yet, the people who are most impacted by these increases in prices are going to hit the Middle Class the worst. That is why these individuals are the most in need of an investment firm like Forefront Capital.

This firm was created by a man named Brad Reifler. He has more than 30 years of experience in the investing world, and he wanted to make sure that there were more options available to the people who need it the most. There are plenty of opportunities for those who already have a large net worth, but these are not the folks who need it the most. Brad Reifler has made a living off of providing investment tips for everyone, so it’s important to him to see that reflected with his company.  Brad Reifler is attempting to level the playing field to some extent by taking on other types of investors.

Accredited investors are those who make more than $200,000 in annual income or who have a net worth of greater than $1 million. These are the types of investors who are most commonly served by the investment firms. That being said, they are not the ones who need the help the most. Reifler knows that the people who really need the help are those who are not considered accredited.

In order to start with Forefront Group, one just needs a minimum deposit of $2,500. They can add small amounts of money to that account over time. Adding small amounts like this can be just what is required to start to get the ball rolling in order to start making a difference in your personal financial.

The options that Forefront Capital offers are great for those in the Middle Class. It is often believed by other investment firms that those in the Middle Class are unable to think about investments in any kind of sophisticated way. This erroneous belief has locked out the Middle Class from getting invested in the market in the way that they want to.

Forefront does everything that they can to try to help those who are new investors to understand what kind of investments they are getting into. It is a good thing that people have some firm that they can turn to in order to get investment help. The Middle Class needs to begin saving now, and up to this point the investment world has simply ignored them for a very long time. Now things are changing and it couldn’t come at a better time.  Brad Reifler campaigns on Twitter for these ideals, and for other aspects of the financial sector for which he feels need to be reformed.

Wirth understands that prospering air travel also means a prospering gaming, business, and ski industry, especially in such a regional economy.

End Speculations as FreedomPop Declines Acquisition Bids

Posted on July 22, 2015

FreedomPop has cleared any speculation that the company was on sale. The multiple investors that had shown interest to purchase the company will not benefit from the sale since the company has declined all the offers to trade its ownership. In a show of might and sustainability, the company has raised $30 million as part of its expansion plans for both the local and international markets.

According to the CEO, Stephen Stokols, the company plans to expand in the US by adding a new carrier partner next year. The funding is headed by several of the companies investors including DCM capital and the Mangrove Capital as reported by TechCrunch. Apparently, FreedomPop was in serious sale-off talks with other carriers.

However, it seems that the company opted for getting more funding to expand rather than giving up ownership to other investors. The CEO argues that the company risks losing its strategic objectives if it is acquired by a different investor. With the future looking bright for FreedomPop, acquisition would be losing too much.

The company anticipates to reach a remarkable size of subscribers in its expansion plans in the UK. Such positive prospects are some of the key reasons that led to the company’s withdrawal from any acquisition bids. According to the CEO, the company has improved on its services especially voice quality and use experience since it launched its first smartphones services. The company expresses its confidence in its capability to sail through without acquisition adamantly.

Incidentally, there are many companies that had their eyes on FreedomPop. In fact, the CEO did not anticipate the overwhelming number of investors that showed interest in acquiring the company. In the first-round, more than 5 companies had placed their bids. Due to the extra-ordinary interest shown by other investors to own the company, it became easier for FreedomPop to decide whether to sale-off or get funding.

The company agreed to settle on the latter and has also hinted that it will be pursuing partnerships in the US but the terms will have to be complimentary to its contract with Sprint. FreedomPop is not relenting on its pursuit to increase its subscription membership around the world. The new SIM card released will allow user to roam in more than ten countries. By the end of the year, the company will have also launched its international pursuits.

Posted on April 01, 2015

North American Spine Center treats patients of all ages. Recently, they once again showed their concern for the community by donating over 50 yoga mats to Robert E. Lee elementary school in Dallas, Texas.

At North American Spine, the caring professionals now that problems of the spine do not only begin in later life, but also can occur in the younger population as well. The generous donation was an attempt to aid in a yoga program that was initiated and filmed by the CW. Children as young as 4 and 5 years old were taught simple yoga positions such as downward dog and the bow to help in the prevention of back problems.

According to the North American Spine, it is best to implement simple stretches throughout the day to strengthen and elongate stomach and back muscles. They also recommend not to sit for prolonged periods of time throughout the day. They suggest not sitting for longer than 1-2 hours at a time without a break to get up and stretch your legs. This practice helps with circulation, which is crucial for proper recovery of a disc injury. Sitting for prolonged periods of time puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the spine and can lead to back pain and disc problems.

Researchers Transform Leukemia Cells Into Harmless Cells

Posted on March 16, 2015


Finding a cure for cancer is one of the most important medical challenges and what researchers ave achieved from the School of Medicine at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, is amazing.

Researchers have found that when leukemia is very aggressive, it wreaks havoc on the body, but the solution may be to force the cancer cells to grow and succumb.

After a casual observation in the laboratory, researchers found a method that can cause leukemia cells to mature into dangerous harmless immune cells known as macrophages.

Immune cells become cancerous and harmless

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia B cells with a mutation called the Philadelphia chromosome is a particularly aggressive cancer with poor outcomes, explains one of the authors of this work, Ravi Majeti, assistant professor of Medicine and lead author on this ground-breaking study.

Immune cells become cancerous and harmless

Majeti and colleagues made a key observation of leukemia cells that were collected from a patient in an attempt to maintain living cells in a culture dish.

“I threw everything at them to help them survive,” says Majeti, who is also a member of the Stanford Cancer Institute and the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.

Some of the cancer cells in culture were changing shape and size. After more experiments Majeti confirmed that they had the methods to alter the fate of leukemia cells of a mouse and the experiment could be used to transform human cancer cells to basically swallow and digest cancer cells and pathogens.

The next steps of researchers will see if they can find a medication that promotes the same reaction and could serve as a basis for leukemia therapy.

Gluten: Misunderstood or Misused

Posted on February 18, 2015

Wheat feeds one third of the planet’s population, as it is the most popular crop that is planted worldwide, yet could it be that a foodstuff that provides us nourishment and sustenance can be harming us at the same time?

Gluten, a key protein found in wheat as giving dough elasticity in the baking process, has been gaining notoriety as a harmful element to the digestive system of individuals. Popular books such as Wheat Belly and Grain Brain have brought attention to the belief that gluten is the primary source of many health issues. The underlying belief is that once wheat products such as breads, and pasta products are eradicated from the diet, their health will improve. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly contends that contemporary agricultural breeding techniques have made gluten toxic.
Washington State University wheat breeder Stephen Jones contends that wheat is not this issue, but the baking process in the oven that is the root of such concern about gluten reported Jones believes that with the advent of modified yeasts and additives, the rising time of dough, which use to be hours or in some instance days, has been reduced to minutes. Research conducted by Jones concluded that if left to rise twelve hours, the less potent the gluten becomes which remains in the baked product.
Contemporary baking practices or agricultural breeding practices; are they responsible for gluten-related health issues?
