The financial industry has various ways that things are done. The industry is very dependent on raw numbers and the data that can be obtained from the raw data. The financial industry uses the raw data generated in the industry and the data generated from the raw data for many purposes. One of the purposes that the raw data and resulting data is used for is to define the various aspects that comprise the financial industry.
One of the major aspects of the financial industry where numbers are used to define are the investors that makeup the investor population. The defining of investors is based on the financial condition of the investors. There are two types of investors as defined by the financial industry, which are accredited investors and non-accredited investors. As a group, accredited investors are investors who have a net worth over one million dollars, and the investors earn over $200,000 a year.
On the other hand, non-accredited investors are investors who have a net worth of less than one million dollars, and the investors earn less than $200,000 a year. As a group, accredited investors comprise only around 1% of the total investor population. Non-accredited investors comprise around 99% of the total investor population.
While accredited investors only comprised a very small percentage of the overall investor population, accredited investors total the vast majority of the investment dollars generated in the financial industry. This is one of the main reasons why the financial industry concentrates on working with accredited investors.
Although this has been the situation for a very long time, there are some investment companies that have started to embrace non-accredited investors. Brad Reifler is the CEO of one of these companies. As the CEO of Forefront Capital, Brad Reifler has made an adjustment in his thinking regarding non-accredited investors.
Over the past few years, Brad Reifler has developed investments with the non-accredited investors in mind. The investments are usually set to allow the non-accredited investors to invest smaller amounts of money over a long time period. The investments regarding non-accredited investors have been performing well for Brad Reifler and Forefront Capital.
