An investor and current editor at Banyan Hill Publishing, Bauman offers insightful recommendations on how to protect your assets against disasters such as floods and fire, burglars and corporate greed.
One of the ways to disaster-proof your valuables is by storing them in a lockbox or home safe which can be customized according to the size of the valuables. Ted Bauman holds that lockboxes are not only waterproof but also fireproof. While cautioning against storing valuables in a home, Ted Bauman advises that effective asset protection can be achieved by diversifying the storage of your valuable assets. He also recommends the use of safe-deposit boxes in both local and foreign banks to secure liquid assets. Safe-deposit boxes come with ease of accessibility but are however covered by insurance in some cases. They are protected by the law and can only be accessed by other parties through a court order. Such advantages are also enjoyed by those who use independent vaults in non-local and foreign-based financial institutions. A graduate of the State University of New York where he received a B.S. degree in Business Administration, Bauman securing your liquid assets in such vaults require greater financial outlay.
Drawing from over two decades of experience as a financial expert, Ted Bauman cautions that the current bull run of the market stocks may not last for long. Therefore, Bauman advises investors in stock markets to protect their investment against such uncertainties through practical planning. He notes that a huge upsurge in the stock value usually follows a massive drop in the intrinsic value of stocks. Using this valuation-based stock trading can help investors to buy shares at a bargain price and sell them when prices upsurge. He, however, advises investors to make decisions devoid of emotions and based on a balanced view of the stock market. This will allow them to build a defensive strategy to safeguard their investments while also diversifying their portfolios to include bonds and stocks markets.
