On April 28-30, the Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) will host its 16th Annual Spring Life Settlement Conference, a meeting of industry players, institutional investors, hedge fund managers and other professionals with shared interests in the multi-billion dollar life settlement market. Stakeholders agree that surging federal interest in life settlements may well be the single most important development to affect the industry since its inception. Appropriately, the Spring Conference convenes in the heart of our nation's power center and capital, Washington, D.C.

AN INDUSTRY MEETING WITH SERIOUS IMPLICATIONS

When Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis), chairman of the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging, convened an informational hearing on life settlements in 2009, the import was immediately clear to all: the federal government is keen to understand this thriving industry. "This year, our 16th Annual Spring Conference will dive headlong into what may well prove to be the most significant development to emerge since the beginning of this young industry," declared Doug Head, LISA Executive Director. "How we, as an industry, address the federal question may set the course for the next decade and beyond."

WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA?

A distinguished conference faculty will lead discussions on a comprehensive slate of timely issues. A brief glimpse of event sessions follow:

- The State of the Industry: Innovating the Market and Building Investor Confidence
- Consolidation and Strategic Alliances in the Industry
- Fund Management and Policy Servicing: Striking the Right Relationship for Optimum Results
- Restructuring and Revaluing Life Settlement Portfolios -- Dealing with the Effects of Lengthened LEs and Distressed Capital Markets

EXCLUSIVE NETWORKING AND EXHIBIT OPPORTUNITIES

Year after year, LISA conferences offer extensive opportunities to expand your networking base with the professional contacts necessary to drive your business forward. The 16th Annual Spring Life Settlement Conference is no exception providing intimate cocktail receptions, bustling luncheons and a revealing exhibit hall. Additionally, paid registrants enjoy 24/7 post-conference access to the complete attendee list as well as all distributed conferences materials.

A SPECIAL LICENSING SESSION

The Spring Conference opens with a special session on Illinois licensing. In 2009, Illinois joined the already robust list of states regulating life settlements. As the 5th most populace state in the nation, industry professionals will want to take advantage of this exclusive conference session to earn valuable CIE credits and ensure compliance with the new law.

WHY WASHINGTON? WHY NOW?

"Given the steep trajectory of media coverage and federal activity, life settlement professionals would do well to contemplate the possibility of a federal regulatory regime and whether such a regime would be in their interests," explained Daniel Harris, Director of Government Affairs. "Our Spring Conference will shed considerable light on this issue and industry professionals stand to gain the valuable insight they will need to navigate any changes to come."
