As a young man, Ted Bauman emigrated to South Africa, where he attended the University of Cape Town, eventually garnering postgraduate degrees in Economics and History. This would mark the beginning of a career that would span the course of two decades, where Mr. Bauman worked as an executive in the nonprofit sector. Over the years, he would work with a number of reputable entities, including the World Bank, and would also help to found a variety of world-changing initiatives, including Slum Dwellers International, which would assist millions of people in securing adequate housing. He joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013, after concluding his 25-year career in South Africa, and now resides in Atlanta, GA with his family.
Ted Bauman generally begins his workday early in the morning, and after taking his daughter to school, he returns home to work in his home office. During this period, he researches the changes and upcoming economic trends occurring around the world, searching for pertinent information to relay to his growing audience. In order to bring his ideas to life, Ted Bauman utilizes his considerable narrative skill set, transforming information that he admits, could be considered mundane, into informative and accessible research tools. One area that Mr. Bauman specializes in, is wealth management and asset protection.
In his opinion, there are several keys to protecting one’s wealth for the future, which included, adopting a balanced viewpoint, creating a wall of protection around your portfolio, and investing in stocks, as well as bonds. Today, the lure of achieving a substantial gain from investing in stocks often steers many investors away from bonds, but, according to Ted Bauman, investing in both will allow for greater protection during market crashes and other forms of economic decline. Investing in bonds allows for the investor to reap benefits in the form of dividends, which is significantly less risky than their counterparts, due to the fact that the monies attained, are accrued on a monthly basis, and are not affected by “daily stock market gains or losses.” Investors are also a lot less likely to invest in bonds due to the notion that many are relatively uninformed regarding their procedures and processes.
