State of the Life Settlement Market


Program Overview

Nearly every day, a new study is released about the realities of our aging population and how seniors have not properly planned for retirement and/or medical expenses. From the growing retirement savings gap to the senior health care/long-term care funding crisis, seniors should be aware of all their financial options and advisors should be prepared. A life settlement can often be the solution for them as they continue their golden years. A case study analysis will be part of the session.


You will learn: 

  • Capital market and industry update
  • Current pricing and underwriting standards
  • Regulatory and legislative support for the life settlement industry
  • Why policy valuations and audits are vital to proper insurance planning
  • How simplified underwriting is used for pre-pricing
