In a client-advisor relationship, the advisor is at an advantage, which is why it’s an advisor’s fiduciary responsibility to act in good faith for the client’s benefit. And this is more than the right thing to do; in many situations it’s the law. For example, according to The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA): “A fiduciary shall discharge his duties with respect to a plan solely in the interest of the participants and beneficiaries “ (section 404 of ERISA)
With the advent of Life Settlements and the noticeably high hidden value they may contain, Consulting with a Secondary Market Specialist like The Ashar Group can provide a much needed source of revenue for a client, which is why no stone should be unturned to find the fair market price of a policy. If an executor fails to protect the estate’s assets the beneficiaries may have legal recourse to sue the advisor. And even if it even if legal action isn’t taken, the damage to a reputation could have serious consequences.
Life Settlements offer many options, and they are why advisors recommend to their senior clients who are looking for a way to enhance their retirement income to consider looking into the secondary market for a life settlement payout.
