Home / Ted Bauman: The Finance Guru

     In 2013, Ted Bauman joined the Banyan Hill Publishing team. While on the team, he became the editor of Alpha Stock Alert, Plan B Club, and The Bauman Letter. Within those publications, Bauman covers privacy, low-risk strategies, international migration issues, and asset protection.

Bauman has made it his livelihood to put people in contact with tools and resources needed to have financial success and freedom. The main focus in Bauman’s teachings and ethics is to protect citizens from corporate greed and governmental oversight. Bauman’s path into the financial field started in South Africa. There, Bauman was able to earn a degree in Economics and History from the University of Cape Town. After graduating, Bauman was able to sustain a successful 25-year career in South Africa. During that time, Bauman was able to fill numerous executive roles in the sector of non-profit work. One of his most notable roles was serving as a fund manager for housing projects in low cost and low-income communities. While some of his work may have seemed minute during the time, Bauman helped cement an international organization that would help people for years to come. The organization, Slum Dwellers Internationals, went on to help more than fourteen million citizens in over thirty different countries.

Fast forward to the 2000s, Ted left his nonprofit work and went on to work as a financial consultant. He focused on writing and researching finance, urban planning issues and housing for numerous clients. Of these clients include the European grant-making agency, South African government, United Nations and World Bank. In 2008, Bauman returned to the United States and brought with him all that he learned in all of his travels. That experience helped him to serve as the Director for International Housing Programs for Habitat for Humanity International. After 5 years Bauman left habitat for Humanity and spent his time researching and writing full-time.

Thanks to his career and international housing projects, Bauman I was able to travel all over the world. Bauman has been able to visit more than 75 countries. These countries spanned across the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. His travels have taught him that it’s never safe or smart to keep all of your wealth in one place. Instead, the financially successful refuse to put all of their eggs in one basket. They spread their wealth across different continents making it more profitable and even safer to do business and live in these countries. Bauman might suggest that an individual bank with a trusted bank in Switzerland or might see it as more cost-effective to find affordable health care in Costa Rica. There are countless options of economic opportunities and personal financial solutions; all of which Bauman finds his expertise in.
