Ted Bauman has worked in a number of capacities regarding finance throughout his career, and in 2008, after nearly 30 years abroad, he returned to the United States in order to travel a new path as a financial writer. Today, he is the executive editor of several popular Banyan Hill publications, including The Bauman Letter, Alpha Stock Alert, and Plan B Club. Mr. Bauman is a native of Washington DC, but moved to South Africa during early adulthood, studying at the University of Cape Town. After garnering postgraduate degrees in History and Economics, he moved into the nonprofit sector, helping low-income populations to secure affordable housing. It was during this time that Ted Bauman discovered his life’s mission – to help other secure a sovereign lifestyle. Working in this area allowed him to combine his passion for helping others, with his intimate understanding concerning the intricacies of the financial world. One of the largest initiatives that Mr. Bauman was involved in, was Slum Dwellers International – a network of community-based organizations that helps supply a number of low-income areas throughout Africa; to date, the social movement has provided housing for millions of people. Ted Bauman’s financial expertise also garnered the attention of the United Nations, as well as the World Bank – both of which he worked for as a consultant. In 2008, after 25 years, Ted Bauman relocated to Atlanta, GA with his family, promptly finding work with Habitat for Humanity as the Director of International Housing Programs. It was in 2013 that Mr. Bauman joined Banyan Hill Publishing, becoming interested in the career after watching his father, who is also of the same profession. Recently, the two collaborated on a book called, “Where to Stash Your Cash (Legally).”
Time management and work ethic are two things that have followed Ted Bauman throughout the course of his career, and because of this, he often avoids distractions as much as possible. He begins his day in his home office, often searching various news outlets for the latest regarding financial trends and market disruptors. While admittedly, finance and asset management are not the most engrossing topics, Mr. Bauman often likes to incorporate real-life examples into his writing that support the topic at hand. This allows the issues to be a lot more accessible, as well as usable, in the real world. In the future, Mr. Bauman hopes to continue growing his business, while helping the world to become more sovereign, one reader at a time.
