Forefront Investment Trust Caters To Non-Accredited Investors

The investment world is a distinctly divided world. One part of the investment world caters to the upper 1 percent that controls the money and the power around the world and the other part of that world is designed for the small investor that makes less than $200, 000 a year and has a net worth under million dollars. Most of the big investment houses like to work with the big dogs because investing is a game of numbers. The bigger the numbers, the bigger the reward. Capital investment companies make money if their investors make money, and most of them make a lot of money.

Forefront Capital is one investment company that is changing the way they make money and the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital, Brad Reifler, thinks his new approach is going to be very attractive to investors that are not in the top 1 percent. Brad Reifler is catering to non-accredited investors, and he thinks those investors can make more money in his new Forefront Income Trust.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defined an accredited investor as either a corporation or person with a net worth over a million dollars not including a primary residence and income that exceeded $200,000 for at least two years. But in 2010, the SEC changed the rules a little. The new definition of an accredited investor is someone with professional credentials, or a Series 7 license and investing experience as well as an educational background that could help the individual pass a sophisticated financial test.

Reifler wants to get away from those investors, and he want to concentrate on middle-class investors that may not have a lot of investing experience or a Series 7 license. Reifler wants to help close the gap between the 1 percenters and the rest of the population and he thinks his Forefront Income Trust will help accomplish that. The Forefront Income Trust gives investors a chance to invest $2,500 in Forefront Income Trust products that can produce better than 8 percent returns depending on the risk factors involved in the investment.

Mr. Reifler got the idea for the Forefront Income Trust from a 529 college savings plan that lost money. When his children were ready for college, the savings plan had lost 40 percent of its value, and it was worth less than when he started it. Reifler knew he wasn’t the only investor to lose money in these savings vehicle, so he decided to develop a product that would make money.

Brad Reifler has a lot of successful investing experience. He started Pali Capital in 1995, and that company is now worth over $200 million. In 2009, Reifler Founder and became CEO of Forefront Management Group, LLC and Forefront Capital Management, LLC, Forefront Capital Markets, LLC and Forefront Advisory, LLC.

Kyle Bass: Founder of Hayman Capital Management

Hedge fund manager Kyle Bass has a theory about what might happen to the credit growth in Asia over the next couple of years. Bass has a trade strategy to match.

Kyle Bass, the Hayman Capital Management founder and managing partner and financial blogger, told CNBC‘s economist group that Chinese banks have grown too large compared to the country’s GDP. The population is growing to fast for the economy or GDP to keep up with. He said the result of this would be a loan-loss cycle. Another aspect going to be affected is credit. The credit market is going to suffer greatly as consumers will buy less of credit and others won’t be able to pay off their previous debt. This not only hurts the credit market but other markets as well. Consumers won’t be able to help circulate the economy if there is no more consumer spending.

Bass said he is not short Chinese banks, but rather more the rest of the financial institutions across China, specifically those are not physically in China and Japan, but that loan out money to China. He declined to give any specific names. While these can’t be named, there are an essential part in the success of the China market.

He predicts that since Chinese banks have gotten too big, they will eventually lose all of their equity or loss all assets. However, China does have the ability to deal with it through several saved up financial resources and a strong government that is motivated to repair the banks after a lot of economic damage. It could result in an end to double-digit credit growth in China, he said. When the credit is back under control, the China Economy will be back in track to glory. If the credit isn’t growing at double digits in China, then it is not going to grow at double digits in other parts of Asia. That is main financial problem that could bring down the other financial institutions across Asia.

Bass, founder of Dallas-based fund, Hayman Capital Management, in 2006, made his fortune and worldwide headline fame by correctly predicting the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis results. For a while there, he was a superstar and got a ton of credibility. He was M. Night Shayamalan in 2001, coming out of nowhere to get nominated for both his script and direction of The Sixth Sense. Observers claimed that Bass was pure genious and nothing he did could go wrong. However, time went on has not been kind to Kyle Bass.

Bass became to throw his career down the drain after the sketchy ties with General Motors. He decided to take his big mouth on TV and shift the blame of fatalities on faulty airbags to everyone being drunk and not wearing seat belts. This turned into a messy lawsuit and Bass lost all credibility for this selfish and cruel act.
