The Traded Endowment Policy Market
The Motley Fool gives a straightforward, helpful and easy to understand explanation of the traded endowment policy market.
"A traded endowment policy (TEP) is an endowment that the original policyholder has sold on to an investor. The new investor is then entitled to all future benefits that the policy provides, as they have effectively bought it second-hand. They will also take on responsibility for paying the remaining premiums (if applicable)."
It is worth reading if you are considering selling your policy.
