Perspective that only experience can bring
Habersham Funding, LLC ("Habersham Funding") was established as a life
settlement provider in Georgia in 2001, though the firm’s experience with
life settlements began more than a decade earlier. In 1989 company founder M. Bryan
Freeman completed his first life settlement in Georgia. At the time, Freeman was
a successful life insurance agent, but he rapidly transformed his agency into a
nationally prominent life settlement company.
This history first as a life insurance agent and next as a life settlement
broker led to one of Habersham Funding’s greatest strengths: It’s
deep working knowledge of the life insurance and life settlement industries. This
background contributed to one of Habersham Funding’s early strategic decisions
to focus on institutional funders. This decision not to raise money from
individual investors would ultimately become a prophetic one, as other companies
in the life settlement market were closed or their executives held accountable for
problems resulting from money raised directly from individual investors.
While other life settlement companies were started, Freeman and his team stayed
alert to the changing dynamics affecting the industry. When the time was right,
they launched Habersham Funding. Today, Habersham Funding is an "old timer"
in the industry and is building upon the 16 years of experience of its founder and
Habersham Funding is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Habersham Funding is licensed
or otherwise permitted to purchase viatical and life settlements in most states.
