#168: Ted Greene- The Current State of the Economy

“Use your portfolio of alternative investments to design your income so you can replace your w2 income with income coming from stable assets that go up in value when the market gets afraid, scary or slows down.” – Ted Greene


Today I am interviewing Ted Greene again, only this time he is sharing his current economic update. 


He is the Investor Relations Manager at Spartan Investment Group who focuses on acquiring commercial real estate assets. Ted transitioned from equities to real estate after working in the field as a Fiduciary and Investment Advisor.  I spoke with Ted at the Best Ever Conference and knew right then that I wanted him to join me on the podcast. I have in the past interviewed Scott Lewis, the CEO & Founder of Spartan as well as the President CIO & Co Founder Ryan Gibson who presented at FIBI Pasadena. 


Ted Greene: Started in the financial industry right out of college with Merrill & Lynch and after 24 years in the industry he ended that part of his career as a portfolio manager chief compliance officer.
