CrowFly provides investors access to guaranteed structured settlement annuity payments. Individuals who need a cash lump sum now can transfer the rights to their future payments at a discount. The result is a defined set of guaranteed payments from top-tier insurance companies, with a great yield.

How can I become a buyer on CrowFly?
Please contact us and we will work with you to confirm your qualifications. Once you are verified by our team as an eligible purchaser, we will get you set up on the platform so you can view the sales currently available and understand how guaranteed structured settlement payment yields can be better than other fixed-income investment options like bonds or treasuries.
What kind of asset is a structured settlement?
Structured settlements are annuities (generally from highly-rated, well-known insurance companies) that are assigned by a court to an individual who has settled a personal injury case. If that individual comes upon an urgent need for a lump sum payment, they can transfer all or a portion of their future payments in order to receive a lump sum of cash immediately. Investing in guaranteed structured settlement payments through CrowFly offers the opportunity to buy highly-rated paper directly from sellers who until now have been limited to selling to only a few factoring companies.
Is CrowFly a broker?
CrowFly is not a broker. We offer an online platform that connects sellers with buyers. We streamline the communication and sale process, enabling access to quality investment assets that previously have been restricted to a few investors.
What kinds of returns can I expect as a buyer?
Every deal is different, so you should look at the precise terms, insurance company, and payment details. However, we see buyers executing transactions between 3.5% and 5% yield, in general.
How are payments serviced or disbursed?
GoldStar Trust Company is our servicing partner. They work with the annuity provider to ensure that future payments are made to the buyer, on time and to the right place.
GoldStar is a well-established, trusted, and compliant financial institution with over $2B in assets and a reputation in the industry for excellent service and results. They have over 25 years of experience as a Self-Directed IRA Custodian, Trustee and Escrow/Paying Agent and are a division of a bank that has been in business for over 100 years.
How do I close?
Once your purchase has been approved on CrowFly, and you have provided a small deposit, the annuity will be removed from the live listings. A transfer attorney will set a court date to get final approval. We will work with you to finalize paperwork and, when the court issues the transfer order, we will request full payment.
Why don’t I buy the settlement for the full amount on the seller’s policy?
A structured settlement's present value will be lower than its future value, due to inflation.
You expect to receive an annual return on your investment. You agree to pay a lump sum now in exchange for the opportunity to earn a fixed, guaranteed return from the future payments over time. If you had to pay the seller the full future value of their payments, you would essentially be investing in something with no gain.
