ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2014) - The Life Insurance Settlement Association is proud to announce the agenda for its 20th Annual Spring Life Settlement Conference, recurrently our largest conference annually. LISA will be celebrating twenty years of serving the life settlement industry as its leading association at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington D.C., on April 30 - May 2, 2014.
On the heels of the most successful Institutional Investor Conference to date, LISA's Spring Conference features a prestigious lineup of keynote speakers, each with an expert perspective of the forces shaping the future of the life settlement market.
One of the many highlights of LISA's Spring Conference will be a special Keynote Address by United States Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. Senator Casey has been the leading advocate for federal legislation that clarifies tax treatment in the sale of a life insurance policy and has been among the strongest advocates for ensuring continued access to the Social Security Death Master File for legitimate users. Our attendees will get a chance to have the Senator share with them updates along with his views on these subjects.
Professor Lauren Cohen, Harvard Business School, will lead a discussion among attendees that will bring insight and a fresh perspective to the market in a session called, "The Impact of Growth on the Drivers of Structural Change for the Life Settlement Market." This session will provide important input for firms considering strategic changes as they prepare for the future.
Eleanor Blayney, the CFP Board Consumer Advocate, will join Jim Mark, National President of the Private Care Association and Bill Fralin, President of the Estate Planning & Elder Law Firm, in a session titled, "Advising the Advisor." The speakers will address the importance of the advisor/consumer relationship and how the life settlement industry might better serve their constituents in generating more consumer familiarity and awareness of life settlements.
Kathleen Birrane of DLA Piper will convene a panel of lenders to explore life-insurance backed lending. Other presentations will address an expanding life settlement market, the challenges and opportunities in using the death master file, along with capital market, litigation, legislative, and regulatory updates.
This conference is sure to be a grand celebration and a worthy educational and networking event. Come celebrate with us as we look at the past, present, and future possibilities of the life settlement industry.
