They are clueless to the asset class theyre investing in and most have no idea what factors are used to determine the value of the life insurance policy. Perhaps forcing the investors to take a class helping them understand the process and pricing of a life settlment will be required in the future. In the meantime as a settlement broker with Integrity Life Settlement in Maplewood NJ we continue offering monthly webinars to financial professionals and individuals alike in the hope that a better educated consumer will help put an end to some of the shenanigans

“If it is too good to be true, it probably is”.

Never, ever trust financial advisers at face value; all they are after is a fat comnmission cheque. Check, and then check again and if it is too good to be true, then ask yourself why has it not already been done.

Never, ever put all your money in one basket.
