Investment leader Brad Reifler is passionate about bringing newcomers into investing, and he’s also passionate about philanthropy and helping veterans in need. So recently he formed a partnership between his company, Forefront Capital and Easter Seals Dixon Center, a foundation that offers assistance to returning veterans in connecting them to civilian job training and healthcare services.
According to Bloomberg, Brad Reifler has contributed $3 million to this center and is hopeful that it will help the center be able to accommodate many more veterans and their families. Reifler certainly believes that equipping veterans to succeed in the civilian workforce and helping them find financial security is vital to the economy overall.

Brad Reifler has been a successful investor for over 30 years with a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College. He began investing in futures back in the 1980s when he built the Reifler Trading Company.
The company accrued billions of dollars both in assets under management and income and after about 20 years it was sold to Refco Inc. Brad Reifler founded Pali Capital in 1995.
This company took a different approach to hedge fund management than the norms of the day by letting the account managers work closely with individual investors and using a packaged strategy that Reifler only guided in executing instead of telling account managers what to invest in. After 14 years as CEO of Pali Capital, Brad Reifler founded Forefront Capital.
Forefront Capital became Reifler’s largest investment firm yet with clients from the fortune 500 and fortune 1000 industries and investment banking. But he became aware of the needs that middle class Americans had to secure their future and provide for their families, especially when his father approached him with a request to invest his lifesavings in a good retirement account.
Reifler tried to find a good investment for his father’s money but had little luck due to regulations against non-accredited investors. So years later he founded Forefront Income Trust, a public fund that allowed all investors to invest in for even as little as $1,000.
Reifler is not interested in profiting off investment decisions whether good or bad, but instead wants to make sure his customers’ investments meet their goal.
