It’s difficult to go anywhere nowadays, where economics is a conversation without the name Ted Bauman being mentioned. When it comes to finances, he is considered a top-notch official and expert with a humble background, vibrant presence in current day events, and he is sure to be even more well known in the future.
Ted Bauman’s outside of the box mindset has gained the attention of just about any and everyone in the finance industry. For example, he was a recent keynote speaker at the highly regarded, well known Total Wealth Symposium 2018, speaking on stage alongside experts such as Jeff Yastine and Paul Mampilly about very concerning and relevant topics such as cybersecurity, protecting assets, and growing retirement investments at more rapid rates than most institutions have previously advised.
Ted Bauman believes strongly that there is a half and half chance that the stock market could go in either direction in the near future, meaning that it may either rise or fall, and he does not foresee a stronger likelihood that one will happen over the other. In fact, he urges investors to not worry about the natural ups and downs of the market. He brings attention to Black Monday in 1987, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped tremendously, rattling the economic sector and panicking investors. Those investors who took the risk of buying additional stocks actually saw sufficient return within a years’ time. Those who sold out of fear ended up losing their money.
While Ted Bauman was raised in the United States, he lived in South Africa for a number of years as he earned his masters degrees in both history and economics. His early years began as an everyday citizen working at fast food restaurants and a variety of other minimum wage jobs that grounded him with wisdom, humility and insight. In his most recent years, he has worked with some of the world’s largest stock accounts, banks, and other financial institutions as well as top line investors.
