Life Insurance Settlement Association to Host 5th Annual Institutional Investor Life Settlement Conference on February 23rd in New York City

ORLANDO, Fla.--()--The Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) today announced that its Fifth Annual Institutional Investor Life Settlement Conference will be held on February 23, 2015, at The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park in New York City.

“This year’s conference will include a keynote address and presentations from institutional investors about the opportunities, challenges and benefits of investing in the secondary and tertiary markets for life settlements”

LISA’s annual gathering for institutional investors is the largest event in the industry that brings together executives from pension funds, hedge funds, family offices, foundations and endowments to discuss the latest developments in the life settlement and secondary market for life insurance. A life settlement is the sale of a life insurance policy to a third party for more than its cash surrender value, but less than its net death benefit.

Research from Conning & Co., The Deal Pipeline and LISA independently documented a steady uptick in life settlement transactions in 2013, which appears to have continued throughout 2014. Indeed, expectations for continued growth are anticipated over the next decade as the over-65 population explodes from 42 million in 2012 to an estimated 70 million in 2030.

“This year’s conference will include a keynote address and presentations from institutional investors about the opportunities, challenges and benefits of investing in the secondary and tertiary markets for life settlements,” said Darwin Bayston, president and chief executive officer of LISA.

Other presentations and discussions will focus on investor return expectations, market disclosure and transparency, maximizing value by aggressively managing portfolios, issues of performance measurement and the status of tertiary market activity.

LISA’s annual Institutional Investor Conference has become the hallmark event of the secondary market in life insurance for institutional investors. For more information about LISA’s 2015 Institutional Investor Life Settlement Conference or to register to attend, please go to www.lisa.org.
