Reifler explains the new film, Money Monster

Money Monster is a fictional movie that unveils the mystery about Wall Street and the challenges faced by small-scale investment. Wall Street concentrates on well-off, accredited investors by creating investment opportunities that restrict non-accredited investors. Previously, Brad Reifler focused on helping the wealthy individuals increase their worth. Nonetheless, he has changed his focus to the middle-class Americans by providing similar investment opportunities as the wealthy individuals. In a press release issued on May 18, 2016, Brad Reifler shared three major challenges experienced by small-scale investors. They include:

  1. Access to investments

Unlike accredited investors, non-accredited investors are restricted to some investment opportunities. The US government regards accredited investors as intelligent as they can invest in private funds, hedge funds, and private equity.

  1. Fees

Most small-scale investors cite fees as the major problem on Wall Street. Firms charge hefty fees irrespective of the performance of their portfolio. As a result, brokers become rich at the expense of their clients.

  1. Stock Market Risk

Since non-accredited investors involve in the limited investment options, most of their investments correlate with the stock market. In 2009, Brad established Forefront Capital to restore investment power to the small-scale investors. Brad’s mission is to level the playing ground by creating similar opportunities regardless of the size of portfolio.
