Ted Bauman has quite the interesting past for an economist and financial advisor on Banyan Hill. Unlike many of the other experts on the platform, Ted has spent the majority of his life and career across seas and traveling. More specifically, Ted lived in South Africa for more than 25 years and traveled all over the country as well as other countries doing humanitarian work, in a sense. In South Africa as well as many third world countries throughout the Middle East and Asia, there is a huge gap in the population in terms of wealth and opportunity. Ted Bauman focused on working at non-profit organizations trying to make a better living for the average citizen, whether they were in need of work or life support.

When Ted Bauman first moved to South Africa, he spent several years studying at Cape Town University until he successfully completed his degree in economics. Rather than returning home, Ted Bauman stayed in South Africa because he saw the condition that many people lived in and he wanted to help improve the community. Ted joined a variety of philanthropic organizations over the years, working as a financial consultant, fund manager, as well as various other jobs to help people around the country. Even when Ted finally returned to the United States in 2008, he wasn’t the financial advisor that he is today. Instead, Ted returned to take up a job in Atlanta at the Habitat for Humanity as a program director.
Ted has done an extensive amount of traveling throughout his life, much of which occurred because of his career at the time. Because of this, Ted is not only experienced in various markets as an economist, his work has been recognized and appreciated in many parts of the world. Since the start of his career, Ted has been showcased throughout a variety of different news outlets and journals, including The Cape Times, South Africa Press New Internationalist, Small Enterprise Development, and more.
