What Are Annuities, Private Placements, and Illiquid Securities? - Transcript

Placements the liquid Securities these are all things that once you’re in it it’s very difficult to get out of it so I lump them together for those reasons that these are not things that are publicly traded per se so you can’t just say you know what I don’t like this anymore I’m gonna sell it now annuities you can get out of an annuity but there’s steep penalties for that and you lose a lot of the benefits of the first place reason that you may have gone into an annuity with private placements I mean there are some private placements the way that the operating agreement is worded they are Perpetual for the rest of your life maybe your family’s life maybe their family’s life uh and so on and so forth there are sometimes a secondary market for some of these products but you typically take a 30 40 50 haircut on the Investments current value which may not even be full value to sell it in the secondary Market these are investments where it is critically important at the outside outset that the recommendation be appropriate for you in your best interest considering yourself and even your estate uh and your family members you know are the people that are going to inherit this able to understand what it is and manage it is it a large portion of your estate these are all questions that really critically have to be asked at the Forefront before going into an investment like this.

Testimonials From Former Clients
I highly recommend Jenice and her team at Malecki Law. I had a challenging, and lengthly case. Jenice was professional, very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. She managed to make the process far less stressful during a very difficult time. They care about their clients, and it definitely shows. Mario
Jenice is truly a miracle worker and one of the top securities lawyers. She handled a very difficult case for us, displaying her legal knowledge, intelligence, and savviness throughout the process. I cannot recommend her enough. The quality of work from her team rivals that of corporate law firms. She was always available, extremely professional, and made sure to know all the details of the case. We were very fortunate to have been referred to Jenice and highly recommend her for any securities related legal issues. Nathan A.
An excellent professional who represented us in trial regarding a bank fraud, an unexpected and difficult time. A professional that worked hard, persevering and who stood toe to toe against firms that had a team of excellent lawyers backing them up. Her unflinching determination really stands out, it makes you feel you have someone who really cares about trying to recover what you lost from the people that wronged you. Salomon Levi
It is difficult to thank you in words when gratitude comes from the heart, so I will try to link feelings with writing. It is essential for us to mention your excellence as a professional, your aptitude on legal fields, and your unavoidable persistence. All of these virtues that elevate the profession you exercise in such an admirable way, go hand in hand with your sense of ethics, your human warmth and the transparency in your actions. To sum up, thank you for being a listening ear and for having the right word while transmitting information about the legal process. Having you as our representative during such an adverse situation was a privilege and enough reason for our eternal gratitude. Angeles Aparain
To say that my securities litigation was complex would be a severe understatement. With multiple parties involved and spanning many years, trying to understand the issues was daunting to say the least. Jenice and her team broke down the transactions by segment and by party uncovering every hidden expense. In the end, I was more than happy and could not thank Jenice and her team enough. I would not hesitate to recommend Jenice to anyone. She is highly professional, incredibly knowledgeable, well connected to industry experts, has a tireless work ethic and is so pleasant and easy to communicate with. Five stars for sure!
