The investment world has been notoriously closed off to the general public since, well, forever. Investing is incredibly difficult, expensive, and time consuming and as a result many people never get the chance to really reap the benefits. Brad Reifler, the founder of Forefront Capital, has long been aware of this inconsistency in equality in terms of rich and non-rich investors. Reifler, inspired by his own family, decided to go ahead and do something and that something was the Forefront Income Trust.
According to Crunchbase, Brad Reifler has been investing with Forefront Capital for years now but his focus has mostly been on that of the accredited investor. An accredited investor, as defined by the SEC, is someone who meets a rather rigorous financial threshold.

In order to be considered an accredited investor you must have a net worth exceeding $1 million, excluding your home, or an annual income of over $200,000. Obviously the vast majority of people don’t fit into this threshold and thus they are never given the opportunity to really invest in these exclusive opportunities. Reifler’s work with Forefront Income Trust is going to be focused on giving power back to the 99% of investors out there.
Initially the goal of the accredited investor was to keep risky investments away from lower income investors. However, this definition was created far before the prevalence of the internet and the ability for people to research around the world.
Brad Reifler points to advancements in technology as well as the ability to keep ahead and informed as his primary reason for giving the power back to the 99% of investors out there that don’t meet the SEC standards. Brad Reifler hopes to introduce a whole new generation of investors to new investments that they can parlay into even greater wealth for themselves and their family.
