Orlando, Fla.

Investors are renewing their interest in life settlement investments as vigor returns to capital markets following the deep recession of the last two years.

Indeed, recent press reports such as the announcement of the purchase of a multi-billion dollar life insurance portfolio by Fortress Investment Group suggest that the rebound is already in progress.

The 16th Annual Life Settlement Fall Conference in Miami on Nov. 10-12 will feature experts who will explain why investors should be in this enduring asset class and how they can ride this resurgence in the settlement market.

“As investors begin to re-examine life settlements as a viable alternative that offers attractive, uncorrelated investment returns, they need the information and access to experts that our annual conference provides,” says Doug Head, executive director of the Life Insurance Settlement Association based in Orlando, Fla. LISA is the premier settlement association, representing over 80 percent of all life settlement business licensees. LISA members hold over 750 provider life settlement licenses nationwide.

“The conference will also provide ample opportunity for investors to meet and build business contacts in a collegial setting with members of the life settlement industry,” Will Menezes, LISA’s business manager notes.

The gathering will kick off with an investor workshop on November 10 including an action packed agenda that will examine the advantages and disadvantages of life settlements; risks and misconceptions, industry practices; the transaction process; pricing and valuation; and types of investment vehicles and fund structures.

If you are a hedge fund manager, an investment banker, mutual fund manager, family office manager or pension plan manager, this workshop will arm you with the knowledge you need to be part of the next wave in the settlement market. Investors will be part of what will be a great warm up for the full conference and its strong lineup of educational sessions. As a commitment to the life settlement market, LISA is offering the investor workshop free for investors.

Attendees at the conference can look forward to sessions addressing the past, present and future of transaction fees as well as a ‘how to’ on developing asset allocation models which include life settlements, an investment which makes sense because it does not correlate with other investments, and can be structured into a model that reflects different time horizons and levels of risk tolerance.

Other compelling sessions will explore contrasts in yields and risk and return for asset classes that compete with life settlements, and will review how recently passed legislation such as the Dodd-Frank Act could impact the settlement market.

Registration can be completed by going to www.thevoiceoftheindustry.com or by calling the LISA Event Department at 407-894-3797.

LISA’s mission is to promote the development, integrity and reputation of the life settlement industry and to promote a competitive market for the people it serves.
