Life Insurance Settlement Association Looks to Sell Out Its Annual Institutional Investor Life Settlement Conference for Fourth Year in a Row

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- The 4th Annual Institutional Investor Life Settlement Conference hosted by the Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) is the hallmark investor-based event that links pension funds, hedge funds, family offices, foundations and endowments to the life insurance secondary market. The Conference will be held at The Westin New York at Times Square on February 24, 2014. Online Registration is available now.

Investors and secondary market attendees will learn and discuss new trends and opportunities in life settlements, ranging from new initiatives related to policy origination, the evolving connection between long-term care and life settlements, the importance of a vibrant tertiary market and much more -- the full Agenda is available now.

LISA is pleased to announce that Scott Hawkins of Conning will present Conning's market forecast, the issues investors need to be aware of when considering entering the life settlement market, and the opportunities and challenges in developing settlements as a funding solution for long-term care, as outlined in Conning's recent report, "Life Settlements: A New Opportunity in Smaller Policies."

Attendees can also look forward to an interactive discussion led by Dr. Lauren Cohen of Harvard Business School, along with Alan Buerger of Coventry First and Gary Brown of CMG Life Services, on the recent case study, "Seeking Alpha in the Afterlife." The case will provide a self-analysis of the life settlement industry and give attendees an opportunity to explore innovative business strategies to increase market share and activity.
