Brad Reifler has brought on a new philanthropic endeavor to his company, Forefront Capital. This endeavor is to help current and former military servicemen through a partnership with Easter Seals Dixon Center. This center helps military members coming home from duty transition into civilian life through educational and employment support, as well as finding healthcare for wounded veterans and their family. Reifler has given the organization $3 million in donations and hopes his partnership will help them be able to provide quality services. The center’s leaders are happy that Reifler and his company have taken an interest in helping military members.
Brad Reifler is an investment advisor that has brought many fortune 500 and high net worth clients to Forefront Capital over the years. Prior to founding Forefront Capital he managed Reifler Trading Company, a company he started back in 1982 that went from managing global derivative funds and special accounts, to becoming a large futures company. He sold that company to Refco Inc in the year 2000. He also ran Pali Capital, a hedge fund management firm with a specialized execution package for 14 years, and then dissolved that company just prior to founding Forefront Capital.
Forefront Capital was initially targeted at high profile and institutional investors, but he later started bringing in lower income and middle class investors after several experiences prompted him to look in that direction. Back when he was a beginning investor, he had tried to start a college savings fund that was promised to have all the funds ready by the time it matured, but it never reached the amount it was promised. Brad Reifler also tried at one time to invest his father’s life savings into a special fund that was more reliable than stock market funds, but because his father wasn’t accredited he couldn’t invest in the fund he wanted.
Brad Reifler decided to work with the SEC to establish a public fund for lower income investors that wouldn’t require any hoops to jump through. His initial fund only required $2,500 to get started. Recently he established Forefront income trust with IRA options for individual investors starting at only $1,000.
