Life Settlement -- New Liquidity for a Traditional Asset

The amount that a buyer is willing to offer in a competitive marketplace determines the value of a life insurance policy. That is the principle behind Life Settlement. With the emergence of the secondary marketplace, life insurance has evolved as an asset on par with bonds, real estate, equities, etc. Life settlement has become a useful planning tool that provides policy owners with a new “exit strategy", a means to convert unnecessary or unaffordable policies into cash.

Financial services professionals, attorneys and CPAs, need to understand the benefits that these transactions can provide to senior individuals, business owners, charitable organizations, trustees and other clients.

"I thought, Wow, what an incredible way to put a value on this (asset)."
- Stephen Ellis, policy owner and Veris client,
Wall Street Journal

The Insurance Studies Institute recently reported that
“The secondary market for life insurance policies provides a great social and economic value for seniors.”
