The Buying Process

Step 1: Investor decides to use non-qualified funds (cash) or qualified funds (a retirement account) to buy into a pool of life settlements, and signs the appropriate documents.

Step 2: First Western Trust, an independent trust company, receives those funds.

Step 3: First Western Trust issues a certificate of ownership to the investor.

Step 4: A portion of the invested money is transferred into the 'premium reserve account'.

Step 5: When a policy matures, the insurance carrier pays the claim to First Western Trust.

Step 6: First Western Trust then pays the investor their share of the proceeds.
