Secondary Market Annuity is ran out of a tiny little apartment in Connecticut. A secondary market annuity is not an annuity. The term secondary market annuity is a massive untruth that uses the cachet of annuities to capture investors.
Secondary Market Annuity myth What is a Secondary Market Annuity? Secondary market annuity (SMA) is a wholly misleading label given to structured settlement payment rights acquired pursuant to a structured settlement factoring transaction [see IRC 5891(C)(2) and 5891(C)(3)(a)] by salespeople seeking to make a profit. Also known by the more accurate structured settlement derivatives, factored structured settlement, recycled structured settlement payments, or in-force payments. and the misleading secondary market income annuity.

Investors have been hurt, many of them retirees. Some actors like the cachet of annuities for obvious reasons, the implication, however untrue, that its a regulated insurance product providing stable income without disclosing transaction risk.

not an annuity) and how the risks differ from a real annuity, you should not proceed with the investment. Company is not a real company and is ran out of a dinky joke of an apartment where this *** artist lives 43 Harbor Drive, Unit 309, Stamford, CT 06902, US
