During my usual morning commute, I looked up and saw a billboard about values. I wondered what were these billboards asking people to pass on values and whose values should we pass along. Then I started to think about our customers. Do they see our services as something of value? Are our articles, blog posts and other materials useful to them? Do they feel that we value them as a customer and give them a fair value for their future annuity payments?
Value is considered to be worth in usefulness or importance to the possessor. It can be a principle, standard or quality considered worthwhile or desirable. It can also pertain to goods, services or money.
Rescue Capital’s philosophy from day one is caring. We care about the well-being of our team and our customers. Our core values were created to put into action this philosophy and include:
- Treating everyone honestly, fairly, and respectful
- Providing superior customer service
- Providing solutions for our customers that promote their best interest
- Helping others whenever there is an opportunity to do so
- Doing the right thing each and every day
In an ideal world, everyone would strive to live by our values but I am sure this is not the case. Otherwise there would be no need for the Better Business Bureau or other consumer advocacy agencies. Some individuals value money and have no interest in helping others. By thinking differently and following our core values we make a difference in the lives our customers. Real people just like you that may be struggling financially and need to get the most money they can from their future payments.
No one wants to be taken advantage of during their time of need. That’s why Rescue Capital strives to provide solutions that promote our customers’ best interest and a fair value for their future periodic payments. To determine the value of your future payments from your annuity, call Rescue Capital at 866.688.3532.

Thanks to the S&P down grade; the stock market took a nose dive Monday morning. Investors are panicked and dumping their stocks in droves rather than risking further losses. However, this might not be the wisest decision. By keeping a cool head, experts believe that you, the individual investor, can benefit from others’ fear.
I am not a stock or financial expert per se, but I’ve been around the block long enough to know that the stock market will eventually rebound. I also spend a great deal of time reading financial magazines, blogs and newspapers. According to the experts, one of the worst things an investor can do right now is panic, sell their investments and ask questions later. While it is typically against human nature to do so, remain calm and not flee is what you need to do. I know it is hard when the same experts write articles about the next recession.
Next, it is time to do some research. Look at what you have in your current portfolio and try to look for opportunities to diversify your holdings. Make a list of stocks you would like to buy but you can’t afford. Watch and wait. If they drop to 30% of their current price buy them. Eventually your affordable stock will rebound and you can gain a hefty profit. Think of all the investors who bought during the weeks after 9/11 or when Toyota tanked. They made handsome profits from a crisis situation.
Obviously I am not suggesting you dump all your money into the stock market or borrow money you don’t have to finance your purchases, but if you have some money in a savings account, CD or an underperforming annuity it might make sense to re-invest your money.
If you have an annuity and you would like to look into the possibility of re-investing some of your future payments, give Rescue Capital a call 866.688.3532.
A Daily Rate is a special form of structured settlement annuities pricing based on the daily market conditions. Typically a daily rate is only valid for 24 hours so it could be better or worse than book rates. Some companies will only provide a daily rate quote after you pass an investment threshold ($250,000 is standard) and some require a daily rate after you exceed a certain investment threshold ($1,000,000 is standard).
