When faced with regulations, the smartest investment houses find ways to work with them to better their services. This is what Forefront Capital has done. By constantly keeping an eye on the changing dynamics of what is going on in the world of financial regulation, they have made it possible to change the way that the middle class invests.
Brad Reifler is the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital, and he has witnessed first hand how some investors are treated as less than others. He saw his own father-in-law unable to trade some of the same investment vehicles that he personally was able to trade. The reason being because his father-in-law could not find a firm that would take him on as an unaccredited trader. Reifler decided to change that outcome for others going forward.
For those who don’t know, an unaccredited trader is someone who does not have over $1 million in net worth or an annual income of greater than $200,000. Those individuals are rare indeed, but it is important to realize that they are not the only ones who wish to place some trades. Reuters told that those making much less than that sometimes want to trade the same types of things as those with more money.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has changed its rules regarding the trading of certain financial securities. They once require accredited status for traders to get involved with certain trades. However, they no longer put this barrier up instead allowing individuals with enough knowledge of the trade to go ahead and make it. This means if one can prove that they know enough about the product they intend to trade, then they should be allowed to do so.
Forefront Capital comes in as the money management firm that is not afraid to take on those with a little less funding in their bank accounts. They understand that in doing so, they are helping a whole new generation of eager investors. They want to be the firm that takes on the clients that all of the other firms overlook. They understand that there is a market of investors that is being under served, and as a business they look to fill in that gap.
It is an exciting time to be any type of investor in the market right now. There are so many opportunities for growth and advancement that it is difficult to not be thrilled about the possibilities.
