Reifler Is Trying To Help The Common Man

Forefront Capital hopes to introduce the 99 percent to the world of investing. Based on an article on Yahoo Finance Brad Reifler says Forefront Capital will launch a new initiative called Forefront Income Trust.

The new initiative is to help those that are not in the one percent the ability to invest. Currently the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) require investors to be accredited. To become accredited a person or corporation must meet certain income requirements before they can invest, starting at $200,000 and going up to over $1 Million.

Because of the extreme requirements set by the SEC the majority of people are unable to invest their money. The rules set by the SEC are over 30 years old and are now outdated with how people can become educated about investing, and the options available to them.

The Investor Advisory Committee is tasked with reviewing what makes a person an accredited investor. Investor Advisory Committee was started in 2010 and will review the definition every four years to make sure the definition accounts for new technologies and ideas of investing.

He’d given investment tips before but now Brad Reifler decided to look into the options afforded to the middle class, and what could be done to allow them to invest without requiring a minimum of $200,000, and thus Forefront Income Trust was born. With Forefront Income Trust a person could invest with a minimum of $2,500, a far cry from the $200,000 requirement.

On his Twitter Brad Reifler described that he invested in a 529 college savings plan when he was younger, as it was available to anyone, of any income level. Later Reifler would find out the fund was worthless, and ended up losing money.

The final straw for Reifler was when his father-in-law gave his life savings to Reifler to invest, this is when Reifler realized there were virtual no options for the 99 percent. With this information, Reifler set out to make a fund in which anyone could invest in, giving more options to the middle class.

Brad Reifler started his massive rise within the investments world when he founded Pali Capital in 1995. He successful led Pali Capital as CEO until 2008 at which point the company had revenues over $200 milllion a year. Not only did Reifler see the company to excellent returns, he also helped expand the company to more than 200 employees around the world. All outlined on Brad’s official website.

In 2009 Reifler decided to get back into investments by founding Forefront Management Group, LLC. Here is where Reifler has hit his stride offering a diverse set of options for investors, this includes the types of investors such as individuals or institutions, both of which Forefront Management Group handles. With the new initiative Brad Reifler hopes to bring his expertise to the everyday person. Check out what they’re doing next on the Forefront Group website.

Andy Wirth Wins His Fight Against Incorporate Olympic Valley

The Reno-Gazette Journal did an interview with Andy Wirth about the past few years and the outlook for future seasons. The last few years haven’t been kind to the Squaw Valley and Alpine resorts, but Mr. Wirth sees relief on the way. Andy Wirth you may remember is the CEO of Squaw Valley Holdings, and a major supporter to the community and environment of the Squaw Valley area. Despite the recent droughts that ravaged the area, Mr. Wirth said mother nature stepped in with some storms and cold temperatures to restore the area’s vitality.

Also, with the push for incorporation of Squaw Valley withdrawn, Mr. Wirth sees relief coming to the civic concerns and businesses of the area. Squaw Valley Holdings spent a fortune fighting the incorporation that would only have decreased local services, and increased taxes for both residents and area business. Mr. Wirth also believed that incorporation would isolate Squaw Valley from other communities on the North Shore. He saw the incorporation as a disaster both financially and environmentally.

Mr. Wirth a long time champion for the environment, spent his early years as a ranger in Colorado and Rocky Mountain parks. Since his skydiving accident, he has teamed up with the Navy Seals to champion his causes for both wounded warriors and environmental issues. Mr. Wirth shares some of his plans for the future and offers that Squaw Valley Holdings plans on introducing a Gondola to the area that will connect the Squaw Valley Resort with the Alpine Meadows Resort. He also has plans to expand commercial and residential development of the area.

California’s Local Agency Formation Commission sided with Mr. Wirth against the incorporation drive in determining that the incorporation wouldn’t be fiscally feasible. Mr. Wirth believes the community should now focus on transportation and other issues now that the incorporation is set aside. He sees the Olympic Valley stretching out beyond its borders to form a strong cohesive community. Now that the divisiveness is over, he holds out hope for a positive future for the entire community.

Mr. Wirth is a graduate of Edinburgh and Colorado state Universities, and his career in the resort industry stretches over 20 years. He is a well-known philanthropist and entrepreneur, and he has gained world renown for his environmental efforts. He is a major contributor to charities and causes in the Lake Tahoe area, and with his wife Karen currently resides in Truckee, California.

That fateful afternoon, Andy had gone to skydive as usual, but unfortunately, he become disoriented about his landing location when his chute opened. He missed his intended approach and landed in a vineyard. The steel posts and the wires used to support the grapevines caused a lot of trauma in his right arm.

During the accident, Andy focused on a song by Pearl Jam, known as just breath. This song kept him breathing after he was badly injured. He had enough courage to use his left hand to help stop the bleeding from his right hand. He was actually aware that if the bleeding continued, he had very few minutes to live. After landing in the vineyard, he examined his arm and realized that he was in a very dangerous spot. The hand was torn in a bad way, and he had a severe dislocation at the elbow. His arm tissue was torn off his arm and his brachial artery was profusely bleeding.
Andy used his knowledge from back country ranger to stay alive as he waited for help. He managed to control his emotions, and the song helped him a lot. After around 15 minutes, help came, and Andy was rescued. He used a flight to go to the University of California where he could get medical help.

Choice of Residential Projects Outdoes One Big Building in Newark

Newark is a city on the rise. Insiders from the construction and investment sector believe that the city is receiving simultaneous projects that will help in creating a market as well as giving different real estate options for potential residents.

The message given by commercial real estate leaders at the 2015 Newark CRE summit, as was published by NJ Biz on July 21, 2015, is that the city is expecting a series of construction and investment opportunities that will provide the residents with a collection of projects that will provide options to prospective residents and create a market.

Newark currently boasts of 5-10 major class A projects in the construction sector. This comprises of thousands of units. According to Wasseem Boraie, The executive vice president of Boraie Development LLC, the model of providing choices that have proven to be effective in other cities such as Jersey City and New Brunswick will bring about more investment opportunities as well as private capital to Newark.

It has to be noted that panelists have agreed on the opinion that opportunities turned projects would take some time before any benefits from them can be experienced. Richard Tucker, the CEO of Tucker Development, has echoed this concern. Tucker’s firm is one of the leading investors in the city with completed and ongoing projects valued at about $130 million.

Even with the challenge of bringing these projects to the finish line, some investors believe that the current momentum of the city will attract the real estate investors looking to exploit opportunities in Manhattan and around the Hudson waterfront. Jose Cruz, a senior managing director with brokerage firm HFF, agrees with this notion. He has also admitted that there haven’t been enough investment opportunities to date to bring about the large capital. He is hopeful though that his firm could redefine the market and show exactly where the capital wants to be.

Boraie Development has been at the forefront of development in New Jersey especially in terms of real estate. Omar, the president of this company, started rebuilding the city at a time when people thought he was crazy. Nonetheless, his company has brought about the change and development that is needed.

Boraie Development LLC started their influence on development in the city of New Brunswick with the construction of Albany Street Plaza Tower One. Tower two was later created in 2003 to help the city increase its number of class A offices. Boraie Development LLC’s management then constructed top class residential units, as a measure to meet city’s real estate needs perfectly.
