It is always great when someone has a change of heart. They see they can use their knowledge and their power for something good. In the past, Brad Reifler used to be one of the guys that is talked about in Money Monster, the film starring George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and directed by Jodie Foster. The film focuses on Lee Gates (George Clooney), someone that gives out financial advice on an over the top talk show with theatrics and gimmicks. However, he is held hostage when one of his tips proves out to be wrong and someone from middle America loses a huge chunk of their money.
Again, it is important to remember that the film is fiction, but Clooney is the kind of Hollywood actor that really does care. Brad Reifler cares and that is why he is now helping Middle America with their investments. He wants them to have a bright future and a comfortable life. In his field, he is seen as someone that people can trust and rely on, as he will tell people the truth and not just want they want to hear. He is an authentic person and as genuine as they come. People can pick up on that with Brad Reifler. There is nothing phony or false about him. He really explains things to people so they understand it fully and nothing is left to chance.
As far as the film Money Monster, there were three things that stuck out to Brad Reifler as far as the world today. He discussed access to investments. Non-accredited investors don’t usually have the same access that is offered to accredited investors, which isn’t fair. Someone is putting a label on what they can and can’t handle. There are also the ugly and unfair fees. It is all about the brokers making money and it doesn’t matter what happens for the clients. Finally, there is stock market risk which again hurts non-accredited investors and what they can do. Their hands are tied. It is not a level playing field. However, with people like Brad Reifler out there, hopefully the tide will turn.
