Ted Bauman grew up in the United States, where he completed his high school education, following which he moved to South Africa to complete his education. After completing studies at Cape Town University, Ted developed an interest in economic and urban policies throughout communities in Africa. For the next 25 years, Ted Bauman acted as a consultant to a number of different organizations, including the United Nations, the African Government, and Slum Dwellers International.
Throughout the 25 years Ted spent in Africa, he traveled over a large portion of the country to better understand the dynamics of the economy as well as the relationship it held with state politics. Ted has since published dozens of research papers on what he has learned in economics and finances, many of which have been picked up by business journals abroad, including Small Enterprise Development and The Journal of Microfinance.

It wasn’t until 2008 that Ted Bauman finally returned and permanently relocated to the United States. He did so for his new position as Director of International Programs at a major non-profit organization in Atlanta, Georgia. Two decades of experience in finances and economics was the perfect background to improve sustainability and organization within his new company.
Despite being back in the United States, Ted spent a lot of time traveling for his new position as director.

Banyan Hill Publishing is one of the leading sources around the globe for financial and investing information, all of which is provided by industry experts from around the world.

Alongside The Bauman Letter, his primary newsletter, Ted also takes time to write the Alpha Stock Alert and Smart Money.
