The Money Monster
Just recently, Brad Reifler did an excellent breakdown of The Money Monster, a recent film that analyses business risks. He explained the similarity between the film and real life investment. Brad Reifler pointed out the possible dangers and difficulties likely to be experienced by the investors not prepared for the potential pitfalls. He says that any investor seeking to minimize their losses must acknowledge that avoiding common pitfalls comes at a price. He added that investors should be aware of sound investment principals as they can make a significant difference between acquiring substantial profits and suffering repetitive losses.
In a recently published article, Reifler shared several tips that can position dedicated investors well on their way to becoming successful. His first advice is to refrain from investing all their money in the stock market and prioritize the safety of their money. Additionally, investors are urged to know their fund managers well. They should also have good reasons for venturing into a particular business and know what their objectives are. If a given venture is profitable, then they should continue pumping funds into it.
After a thorough study, Brad Reifler has realized that middle-class investors have limited investment options because the government does not accredit them. As such, he now focuses on empowering non-accredited investors who seem to have been overlooked by the government as not being capable run some ventures.
