Kyle Budwell is the main character in Money Monster, a movie whose premise centers on an epic stock market investment failure. He blames stock investor television show host, Lee Gates, for very bad investment advice. In the middle of one of Gates’ live broadcasts of his show, he is violently taken hostage by Budwell. He threatens to destroy the entire studio with explosives he is carrying. Budwell is enraged at the penury injustice he claims was visited on him by Gates, and further, he seems obsessed with his plan to kill everyone.
The film is highly rated as a very realistic view of the actual problems that many financial analysts now agree are becoming a big problem, especially for the middle-income, smaller fish. Gates is stretched quite thin while struggling to calmly negotiate freedom from the crazed Budwell. The problems with smaller investors being effectively blocked from the really big investments are actually now, finally, being addressed by forward thinkers like Brad Reifler.
Reifler has come up against the Wall Street restrictions that the old-money cronies have hedged up to keep the sweetest deals for themselves. Their world has always been kept to the exclusive area of the elite super rich. When he got just how far it has gone, he became immediately interested in helping the middle-class grow through the most lucrative opportunities available. There are some warnings he gives all his clients, all of which he’s provided on Twitter before. Here are the key three:
- Traditionally, smaller investors are not allowed access to accredited larger investments.
- Stock brokers always charge too much.
- The stocks that are correlated to the stock market are all small investors have access to.
When Reifler started Forefront Capital, his mission statement was basically the complete opposition to these artificial, and discriminatory investment restrictions. Forefront is focused on helping Middle America successfully save investment returns for everyone’s retirement. His company charges no management fees and never offers stocks that are simply correlated into the stock market.
