Ted Bauman Explains Why He Became a Financial Writer

After growing up in Maryland, Ted Bauman moved to South Africa. He is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, earning bachelor’s degrees in history and economics. He started work in the nonprofit industry where he helped get affordable housing built in several countries. During his 25 years working in the nonprofit industry he also earned a business administration degree from The State University of New York in 1993 and in 2001 a master of business administration degree from Georgia State University.

He moved back to the United States five years ago and, at the behest of his father, became a financial writer. His father had spent his career as a financial writer and, given Ted Bauman’s background, that he would also succeed at this. He joined Banyan Hill Publishing where he edits three newsletters having to do with investing and migrations issues. He also writes about keeping your privacy from those in government and from corporations.

He says that becoming a financial writer was the best choice of his career. Ted Bauman says that it keeps his mind occupied with the things he is interested in and he gets to help people at the same time. He is working to increase his readership base and expand his investment services. He says that when writing he tried to use practical examples so that his readers can picture exactly what he is talking about.

Ted Bauman says that investors have three choices when it comes to investing. They can get a financial advisor who charges high fees while giving out the cookie-cutter advice their company wants them to tell people. Their second choice is to make their own decisions when it comes to investing without consulting any outside sources. The problem with this approach is that it takes a lot of time and energy which is a big problem if you’re also holding down a fulltime job.

The other option he says is to read his newsletters and those of the other editors at Banyan Hill Publishing. In this way, they can benefit from the advice of experts like Ted Bauman while avoiding the fees of financial advisors.
