today its endorsement of Secondary Market Annuities, which currently offer guaranteed interest rates as high as
Secondary market annuities require a fixed one-time investment amount, typically between $40,000 and
$500,000. In exchange, the investor receives a guaranteed rate of return over a specified time period, through a
series of lump sum and or periodic payments. The payment of secondary market annuities is safe and dependable

Pacific Life, Allstate, Prudential, The Hartford, Aegon, and other A and AA rated carriers.
Annuity FYI offers a comparison table highlighting actual secondary market annuities, informational resources
about these products, and free access to Annuity FYI Experts via e-mail and telephone. Investors can see the
amount of investment required, as well as the timing of returns and monthly compounded effective yields. A

repayment over 24 years of $300,000, for an effective annual compounded yield of 7.75%. Annuity FYI also
offers an exclusive weekly e-mail alert to inform investors of current secondary market annuity offerings.
