The debilitating effects of Wall Street on Main Street are put on stark display in the 2016 film ‘Money Monster’. When failed investor Kyle Budwell confronts television personality Lee Gates, a fictitious Wall Street guru in the film, he does so live on the anchors own show, taking both him and his casting team hostage. Distraught over losing everything on one of Gates disastrous tips, Kyle demands the financial wizard reveal the truth behind Wall Streets hidden practices.
Once a prominent high-income trader himself Reifler, spent a lifetime enriching the pockets of wealthy investors until he’d finally had enough and decided to devote his time to making sure the 99% had access to the same financial information as the 1% when it came to investing.
Currently the CEO of Forefront Capital Management, Reifler experienced a startling revelation when his father-in-law turned 80 and he was shocked to learn that most of the investing strategies he had spent a lifetime mastering were cut-off from his family member.
With most American’s having only a fraction of the $1M plus in savings (after excluding their principal residence) required to become what’s known in the industry as an ‘accredited investor’, Reifler became convinced the average American needed access to the same level of knowledge that his former clients had received.
By doing so, Reifler hopes to give back some of the success that Wall Street was able to afford him, even if it goes against the images most American’s, and even Hollywood, has of a retired Wall Street guru. Read more on Brad’s official website.
