Ted Bauman was born in Washington D.C and raised in Maryland. During his youthful years, Ted moved to South Africa (where he would work for more than two decades). In South Africa, he attended the University of Cape Town and acquired postgraduate degrees in Economics and History. After graduation, Bauman served different executive roles in the non-profit industry. He garnered considerable influence in the non-profit sector during his stint as a Fund Manager for low-cost housing projects. This project acquainted Ted with high-ranking individuals in the South African government and a few humanitarian agencies who were impressed with his efforts. At the dawn of the 21st Century, Bauman worked as a Consultant; researching and documenting his findings on Finance, Housing and Urban planning issues.
His consulting services were sought after by prominent clients including the South African Government, the United Nations, and a few Europe-based agencies among others. In 2008, Bauman returned to his native US. Upon return, he was appointed to serve as Director of International Housing Programs for Habitat for Humanity International, based in Georgia. In his tenure, he traveled extensively to the rest of the Americas and the Caribbean. During these travels, he conducted further research pertaining to issues of international development and documented his findings. Five years later, Bauman vacated his position as Director at Habitat for Humanity in favor of full-time work as a researcher.
It wasn’t long before Ted’s research, and writing skills were sought after by multiple journal publishers: both local and foreign. Bauman has since been published in several international journals such as Environment and Urbanization, Journal of Microfinance and Small Enterprise Development. His works were also published in several South African publications. After being published in several journals as a freelance writer, Ted joined Banyan Hill Publishing in September 2013.
At the firm, Ted specialized in writing about asset protection, issues of international migration and low-risk investment strategies. He currently works at Banyan Hill and serves as the Editor of the Bauman Letter, Plan B Club, and Alpha Stock Alert. Ted’s research and number crunching techniques have developed algorithms that can be used by investors to maximize their returns while maintaining a low risk of loss. Besides this, he has also worked as an author. In late 2015, Ted co-authored the book Where to Stash Your Cash Legally with his father, Robert Bauman (Congressman-cum-author).
