Yesterday’s (10/29/2013) MarketWatch article by Stan “The Annuity Man” Haithcock is the most well written, thorough and complete article on Secondary Market Annuities (AKA In-Force Annuities and Pre-Owned Annuities) I’ve seen to date. My hunch is his has <1000 words to get his point across and get it across in a manner that most can understand and I think he did a tremendous job. He covered most every significant point and it was fair and balanced, e.g. you can’t just go out and do this on your own but if you can find someone who is reputable and you want safe fixed income then you’ll want to give them serious consideration (and I’m not just saying this because I’m quoted in the article).You can find Stan's MarketWatch article here --> “Secondary Market Annuities Boast Higher Yields”.
