Carlisle's Luxembourg Life Fund's Long Term Growth Strategy Added to HFRI Total Funds Index and Fixed Income Asset Backed Index

LUXEMBOURG--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - Carlisle, the Luxembourg-based alternative fund manager, with a global client base that includes pension funds, asset allocators, institutions and investment funds, has joined a growing list of well-established investment funds with its inclusion within two Hedge Fund Research Indices (HFR). The Long Term Growth Fund, a leading Life Settlement investment fund is now part of the Hedge Fund Research Total Funds Index and Fixed Income Asset Backed Index.

The Long Term Growth Fund, managed by Carlisle Management Company, focuses on investing within the secondary life insurance market, and its pioneering mark to market valuation has posted strong double digit returns since inception. The Luxembourg Life Fund will be available the HRFI Indices as of September 1st, 2010.

"As the investment community continues to seek low correlation to other asset classes and low volatility, we are confident life settlements will be part of the equation," said Jose Garcia, Carlisle's CEO. According to Hedge Fund Weighted Composite Index, Hedge Funds enjoyed positive returns in July and August with a capital inflow of 9.5 billion during the second quarter of 2010. Hedge Fund Research was established in 1992 and specializes in the areas of indexation and analysis of hedge funds.

The Long Term Growth Fund's strategy is to purchase carefully selected life insurance policies that are beyond the contestability period. The Fund seeks to build a large diversified portfolio across numerous sectors of the life settlement asset class. In order to properly implement a buy and hold strategy, the fund seeks to isolate mortality risk and build a large sample size. Since policies are held through maturity, the managers employ extremely detailed actuarial and financial analysis to ensure that policies purchased are accounted for longevity risk as well as other variables of the statistical profile. Policies are marked to market on a quarterly basis, to portray an accurate view of the market value of assets.
