Ted Bauman joined Banyan Hill Publishing after having served in the nonprofit industry for almost 25 years. He writes three publications which focus on low-risk investing, international migration, and how to lead a truly sovereign life. He earned postgraduate degrees in both history and economics at the University of Capetown in South Africa. He returned to the United States in 2013 and now lives with his family in the greater Atlanta, Georgia, region.
He acknowledges that topics like finance and asset protection are pretty mundane topics to read about. However, Ted Bauman says that these are also really important topics that people need to know about. He works hard to write about these issues in a way that people will want will want to keep reading more. He also adds in real life examples so that people can picture what he is writing about better.
An issue that Ted Bauman has recently addressed is that unemployment is near record lows and yet wages are stagnant. He wrote that not only are businesses not increasing the wages they offer but have been decreasing the wages they will pay for positions they are hiring for. Usually when unemployment is low businesses will boost the wages they offer in order to bring in talented people and keep the ones they have. This isn’t happening this time around, though.
It is short-term thinking by the management of companies that Ted Bauman says is at fault. They want to increase short-term revenue and profits. This strategy is bound to backfire, though, as lower wages means that people have less to spend. Reduced spending will harm the long-term outlook of businesses because it will decrease demand and people’s ability to buy what the company is selling.

It was started by its three founders; Rob Kauffman (who retired in 2012), Wes Edens and Randal Nardone (who are still principals of the firm). When starting the firm, the intention of the three founders was to establish a unique type of investment firm that would finance the cutting-edge capital vehicles through debt and private equity. This drove them to start Fortress as a private equity firm in 1998.Soon after starting operations, Fortress Investment Group experienced a very rapid growth, which saw its managed assets shoot from below $400 million to $3.9 billion, within its first five years of operation. The company also made several acquisitions that impacted positively on its growth.
