Has the divide between the 1% and 99% become more pronounced in the United States? For some reason, the United States has continued on a path where the 1% “accredited investor” has more rights than the 99% regular investor. Learn the 5 tips of Forefront Capital CEO Brad Reifler for the regular investor, and something he tweets about often.
“What Advantages Do 1% Investors Have?”
The wealthiest investors can hire the best hedge fund managers in the world to try more exotic techniques for making money. The United States Treasury 10-Year Bond (UST) is an example of an investment that might require a very high income. Government sovereign bonds are traded between nations, central banks and wealthy institutions.
Investors need only look through the list at their local bank for certificates of deposit (CDs) to see that the highest investment amounts have the highest interest rates. Likewise, some higher stock prices are intentionally aimed at the high-end investors. The top hedge funds are reserved for the wealthiest 1% investors.
“Inflation Erodes Profits”
Wikipedia shows that Forefront Capital CEO Brad Reifler recounted how some nice-sounding investments might not be profitable during his Reuters press release. Just like any responsible parent, Brad Reifler invested in a “529 college savings plan” for his children. Unfortunately, when it was time to remove the money, the “fund was actually worth less than what he started with.”
Many regular investors are experiencing the same difficult choices at the beginning of 2016 – rising inflation and low interest rates make profitability very difficult. In the 1990s, real estate delivered healthy returns. In 2008, the property market unraveled and now some are looking for a replacement.
