Brad Reifler has been the CEO of Forefront Income Trust since January of 2014. He obtained his Bachelors in Econ and Political Science from Bowdoin College in 1981. He has founded and ran his own company, Pali Capital, for almost 14 years.
After a career working for financial corporations, Brad Reifler decided to found his own company and so Pali Capital was created in 1995. Brad served as Chairman and CEO for the company. Pali Capital eventually developed into a company with international reach, with financial activities not confined to the United States but also with activities in Latin America, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and Austria. The company experienced explosive growth under Brad, increasing revenues by more than $200 million per year.
In 2004 Brad Reifler became the CEO of Forefront Income Trust. This fund allows regular people to invests in strategies that in the past were only accessible to the richest 1%. The assets that this fund invests is in the direct loan and specialty finance market, while seeking to minimize risk.
Bradley has shared what he considers to be the three major problems that small investors face. The first is that financial firms charge entirely way too much, and particularly egregious is that the fees are regardless of their performance. The second is that small, non-accredited investors are limited in what investments they are allowed to have. Non-accredited investors are not allowed to participate in hedge funds, private equity, or other private funds. Third, due to the second main issue, small investors are too exposed to stock markets because that is one of the few investments they are allowed to have.
Brad Reifler founded Forefront Income Trust in order to address these three problems. They are able to offer small, non-accredited investors exposure to alternative investments that they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. Through Forefront Income Trusts large network of deeply experienced and highly respected financial leaders, the company is able to offer opportunities to investors that are not typically available. In order to ensure that the interests of the company and the interests of their clients are free of a conflict of interest Brad Reifler invests proprietary capital into their funds.
