With the financial crisis in mind, and the search for safe and uncorrelated asset classes, Ascor's Life Settlement Educational Seminar offers forward-looking content and insight into the latest developments within the United States life settlement market. The seminar will focus on exposing participants to new opportunities, new strategies, regulation, demand for transparency and best practices in the credit crisis era.

A life settlement is the transfer of ownership and beneficiary rights of an unwanted or unneeded life insurance policy in exchange for a cash settlement. Life settlements represent an estimated $12 billion annual secondary market for life United States insurance policies. As capital sources continue to search for stable returns and low volatility, life settlements are already playing a significant role in the asset allocation strategies of leading banks, financial institutions, insurance companies and mutual funds.
