On February 29th 2016, Front Capital Advisors announced a new partnership with Easter Seals Dixons Center. The partnership will include a donation of 3 million dollars. Front Capital Advisors based the decision on the impressive work Eater Seals Dixon Center does with veterans and military families.
Easter Seals Dixons Center connects individuals with organizations to enable veterans and their families to access employment, education and healthcare. The Center has changed the perceptions about the individuals involved in military service thereby creating opportunities for them and changing their lives.
At the forefront of the partnership is Front Capital Advisor’s CEO, Brad Reifler. He is the founder of the firm and has been its CEO since May 2009. Reifler is a well known entrepreneur and investor. Prior to his position at Front Capital Advisors, he was chairman and CEO at Pali Capital, a financial services firm which he formed. He also served as a trader at Refco, a company founded by Ray E. Freidman, his grandfather. He is currently a director at Sino Mercury Company.
With a degree in economics and political science from Bowdoin College, Brad Reifler has had a successful career spanning decades. He started an independent career in the early 1980s by founding Reifler Trading Company which dealt with fund management, research and advisory and execution services. He later sold the business to Refcoin 2000. Reifler’s global reputation as professional can be attributed to his vast experience in the financial services sector.
About.me indicates the partnership with Easter is not a surprising move with Reifler as CEO since he is an outspoken member of the community, especially when it comes to helping people to find ways to plan their futures and find financial freedom. In a statement made after announcing the partnership, Reifler stated that the partnership is a good business decision since it goes towards changing the lives of the military community while at the same time supporting the clients’ financial well being.
The 3 million dollar donation will be used to fund programs for veterans like caregiver training services, job training, advocacy, health and education. Both organizations are hopeful that the partnership help veterans and military families to involve themselves within their community and in doing so achieve financial independence.
