Are Non-Investors Being Overly Worried?

Is it possible that those who are not putting their money to work in the stock market are simply being overly fearful? Yes, that could well be the case according to Brad Reifler, the founder of the Forefront Capital fund. He notes that while this fear may have been well founded and made sense during the financial crisis in 2008-2009, that time has long sense passed, and there are better emotions to have about the market now.

Reifler worries that many people who require the growth of their money from the stock market the most are not taking the proper steps to get themselves well invested and have that money growing. It is a legitimate fear considering the fact that so many are still on the sidelines. However, who could blame them considering the high barriers to entry that are often in place when it comes to investing?

Forefront Capital seeks to help out those who have been left behind by the Wall Street machine. The current financial advising and investing world has done a masterful job of making a lot of people feel as though they are not worth the time or trouble of the big Wall Street types. They may easily begin to believe that it is not worth their efforts to get noticed either. Forefront seeks to reverse that.

The fund accepts those who do not have accredited status or even a very long history of investing in the first place. It is there for those who have a knowledge of how the market works, but who do not necessarily have enough funding to present to most traditional funds in order to get a seat at the table.

Brad Reifler has created a whole new method for new money from less wealthy individuals to come flooding in. It will actually make a difference in their lives, and it is a good part of the reason why Forefront Capital is so popular.
