The Banyan Hill Publishing has over the years played an important role in economically empowering investors and marginalized groups. Ted Bauman acts as the Chief-editor of the organization and uses his skills as an economist to empower the readers. Ted Bauman was born in Maryland, USA but later moved to South Africa where he joined the Cape Town University. He studied political science, economics, and history. He viewed the three areas as being instrumental in empowering the community. He argues that economic empowerment and freedom can lead to improved social structures. He thus attributes many problems in developing countries as being tied to poverty. Most of the services are thus centered on offering to advise on areas such as wealth and asset accumulation, low-risk investment, fund management and other topics on investment.
Despite having a long stay in South Africa, he moved back to the USA in 2006 and became engaged with different NGOs. In 2013, the resignation of his father from Banyan Hill Publishing saw him become the chief-editor. Through his leadership skills, Ted Bauman has seen the transformation of the organization through the introduction of competitive products and services. He introduced smart money services, ETF trading, and Alpha stock alerts. On the other hand, he introduced the Bauman Letter which has the highest number of subscribers in the organization. The high number of readers and subscribers indicates that the products have had a positive reception.
Ted Bauman engagement in philanthropic Activities
Other than working with many government agencies and corporations, it is critical to note that he has also worked with many charitable organizations with the objective of empowering vulnerable society members. An example is the Slum Dwellers Internationals that has active operations in over 14 countries. The organization has in the past helped more than 14 million individuals. While in South Africa, he worked with the government to create policies that helped foster equality among all groups. During the previous settings, apartheid had led to the marginalization of minority groups. From such contributions, Ted Bauman appears as being a passionate leader who has been successful in positively transforming the society.
