Investing means; giving money to a company to use. If all goes well, the investor earns a certain percentage of return. The larger the amount invested, the larger the return. Smart investors, of course, look for the most promising investments. Promising means, investments with the highest return, and the lowest amount of risk. Companies seeking to raise funds also seek the most secure investors (secure meaning those with the most money). The plain truth is, many companies seeking to raise capital consider only accredited investors. What is an accredited investor?
An accredited investor is an individual with an income of at least $200k per year for the last two years, $300k with a spouse, or a net worth of $1 million (excluding their home). Offering investment opportunities only to accredited investors leaves most people out. Quality investment opportunities must be available to all, or a large market is left untapped by both sides. Enter Brad Reifler.
Mr. Reifler has been successful since graduating Bowdoin University in the early 1980s. His most recent success began when he founded Forefront Capital LLC. As CEO, Brad built a diversified company offering a wide range products. Admittedly, most of Brad’s Foremost success was based on dealings with accredited investors. That excluded many people, like friends and family. Brad Reifler created Foremost Income Trust.
The Foremost Income Trust idea was to offer high yield, low risk investments to non-accredited investors. Each investor would have an affordable buy-in, and no fees are charged until the investor realizes a return of 8%. With this type of visionary investment plan available to the middle class, finance companies may soon have a new group of accredited investors to trade with.
Leading Brazilian businessman, Igor Cornelsen is on a mission to spread the knowledge of the stock market to novice investors. Throughout the years, he fine-tuned his investment strategy and in 2011, he developed Bainbridge Incorporated which is a prominent company that specializes in portfolio advising. Currently, Cornelsen serves as an investment advisor at his newly launched firm and is always eager to provide inside guidance to his loyal clients. Essentially, he believes that investing is a long-term game and, as a result, this prominent business owner encourages his patrons to stay committed to his investing strategies and principles. Most importantly, Cornelsen advises novice investors to adopt a new philosophy regarding the stock market in order to ensure a substantial return of investment.
The first step in ensuring long-term success is to approach the stock market with reverence and careful consideration. Unlike the lottery, investing is a career move and only intelligent and conscientious individuals are likely to win. Therefore, Cornelsen actively monitors his clients’ progress and also frequently asks insightful questions to ensure that they are 100 percent committed to his investment plan.
Perhaps the most important component of Cornelsen’s strategy for success involves maximizing potential profits by researching companies that have guaranteed productivity. Moreover, he teaches his clients to invest in the right arenas such as local farms and lands in major cities. Investing in local farms is a wise option because the cost of food is constantly increasing in many towns in the United States. Similarly, pursuing real estate in big locations like New York City is a worthy investment as the land is always in demand.
Cornelsen also advises his patrons to consider many small investments instead of over-committing to one particular stock. This effective investment approach will ultimately reduce potential losses and increase the chances of a successful outcome. Notably, a highly diversified portfolio reflects the clients’ decision to pursue profitable opportunities in which a major turn of investment is almost guaranteed.
The most common mistake of novice investors is the failure to change their thinking patterns in regards to stock market investing. Moreover, Cornelsen strongly believes that investing intelligently will reduce many errors in the open market and encourage profitable returns.
