Brad Reifler attended Bowdoin College from 1977-1981 studying Economics and Political Science before becoming an American entrepreneur. He has served on the Boards for companies such as Genesis Securities, Foresight Research Solutions, and European American Investment Bank.
He started his first business in the 1980’s when he created Reifler Trading Company which handled hundreds of millions in discretionary accounts, then grew into execution services, institutional research, global derivative advising, and information dissemination. Reifler Trading became one of the biggest independent futures operations, and then in 2000, Brad sold the company to the world’s biggest futures company, Refco, Inc.
Brad Reifler went on and founded in 1995, Pali Capital, a company which focused on equity markets. Reifler caught on to the growth in hedge funds by ascertaining different strategies, and did it by combining top research with derivative structures and credit analysis. He then would pass on his knowledge to sales traders who would then have the ability to package the strategy and perform well.
The company did so well in the 13 years that Brad Reifler was there, that it generated over $1 billion in commission income. Pali had over 300 people employed and offices in four continents. In November of 2008, Brad retired from the company and started a new venture.
In 2009, Brad Reifler started the group, Forefront Advisory, LLC and ForeFront Partners, again creating a unique product offering, which keeps Brad very busy as Founder and CEO. While under the Forefront dome, Reifler has worked hard to bring together some of the most greatly respected and powerful business leaders to Forefront’s platform, and after 30 years of combined experience on Wall Street, continues to do so.
Some of the people serving on the board are from Fortune 100 and 500 companies, one member being the winner of what would be the Nobel Prize of Economics, in China, and yet another holds three presidential appointments.
According to Barrons, Brad Reifler still serves on several advisory and corporate boards and formerly the Trustee of the Millbrook School and Chairman of the Finance Committee. Reifler also has numerous regulatory licenses which include Series 3, 7, 24, and 63. One thing that Brad Reifler does extremely well is having a unique perspective when it comes to the financial world and it has paid off.
