Life insurance is an integral part of any financial plan, however, most industry professionals are kept in the dark regarding the real value of an existing life insurance policy.
At PolicyAppraisal.com, our mission is to educate financial advisors about the value of life insurance as an asset that is worth more than its cash value – and more than its intangible value as a financial safety net. Many appraisal clients choose to sell their policies on the secondary market as life insurance settlements.
At PolicyAppraisal.com, we know what investors will pay for viatical and life settlement transactions. Each member of our executive team has more than 25 years of experience working within the life insurance settlement industry. Wm Scott Page, the organization’s founder, is a pioneer of the life settlement industry and has unmatched experience, knowledge and funding relationships within the secondary market.
Our team has developed proprietary systems and analytics to quickly identify the secondary market value or cash offer value of life insurance policies. We know how to streamline the life insurance appraisal process and add more value than a traditional life settlement broker. By removing the middlemen and transactional “noise,” we can deliver real results versus empty promises and false expectations.
We are industry pioneers and leaders: Call us and find out how our new approach can add more value to viatical and life settlement transactions.
