Ted Bauman was born in Washington D.C and was raised in Maryland. He moved to South Africa at a young age and graduated from the University of Cape Town with postgraduate degrees in both History and Economics. While in South Africa he worked in the nonprofit sector serving executive roles but mainly worked as a fund manager.
Ted Bauman worked on low-cost housing projects, and an example of such is the Slum Dwellers International. He has served with Habitat for Humanity which has seen him travel all over Latin America and the Caribbean.
He is the current editor at Banyan Hill Publishing and also a writer. He is a specialist in asset protection and low-risk investment strategies.
He has appeared in many journals worldwide and has researched while also writing for the United Nation, the World Bank, some European nonprofit agencies and even the government of South Africa.
He writes and edits three blogs at Banyan Hill including the Bauman letter which he has suggested some strategies for disaster-proofing one’s valuables. The other two are Alpha Stock Alert and Plan B Club.
Ted Bauman informs investors on ways to protect their assets. He advised in the case of rules based selling strategies such as opportunity cost sell and valuation level sell which could cause an unexpected crash of stocks; investors should not succumb to panic in such times.
When such crisis occurs it has been shown previously that investors who hold on to their shares or those who consider buying additional shares may experience much better returns as compared to those who sold and lost their money. He also advises investors that planning for the future is crucial. One should focus more on making a substantial investment strategy.
Regarding safeguarding of investments, some of the strategies Ted Bauman emphasizes on is the creation of a wall of protection on investments by creating a protective plan since it is risky not to develop a defensive strategy.
Another way is by investing in bonds and stocks. Bonds offer monthly dividends as compared to stock markets where one is not sure of profits or gains. Bonds are remained protected when loss of value in stocks occurs when there is a crash in stock markets.
