Investments have certain levels of risks. Sometimes these risks are unknown to an average investor. Ted Bauman has been vocal on this mundane topic in finance that most investment pundits ignore intentionally. For example, he has proved through his objective body of work that some shares in the NYSE are overpriced. He, therefore, specializes in low-risk investment as an author and a financial commentator. As a Banyan Hill associate and editor and through his famous Bauman Letter, he has been consistent in educating people how to invest wisely.
Investment protection according to Ted Bauman is an important issue to any investor. He has been a consistent advocate of investing in both risky and safe investment: shares and bonds respectively. He argues that bonds, unlike shares, have less overall profits but they are relatively safe. Fortunately, one can invest in both and maximize on the chances. It is his observation that most shares are overvalued. He is very analytical also; on how and when to sell shares to avoid making losses and this has significantly helped investors.
As a financial pundit, Ted Bauman has worked constantly with different organizations on developing financial blueprints. He has worked with many European NGOs, some governments especially the South African government and United Nations. His contributions in these organizations have been helpful in establishing financial and economic policies.
As a graduate in Economics and History from SA, Ted Bauman has created a niche for himself in the financial markets. Even though he initially worked in the “traditional employment”, the exposure gave him the real picture of what thousands of people go through to make ends meet. He is one of the most traveled financial pundits and these travels give him the needed objectivity in his work. He has lived in South Africa for more than twenty years, working in different firms under different capacities.
Scanning through his twitter account, his intellectual curiosity about the Second Depression is evident. He tweets a lot on financial issues but the question of the second Depression is hugely covered. The resident of Atlanta, GA is probably one of the most vocal financial think tanks.
