Life Settlement Association Hosts Conference to a Resurging Asset Class

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Focusing on "the resurgence of the life settlement market," LISA's 17th Annual Spring Life Settlement Conference on May 4th - 7th in Washington, D.C. is set to bring a new depth of knowledge to investors while expanding the issues to other industry segments.

As the industry matures, capital markets are renewing their interest in life settlements. Indeed, the recent Institutional Investor Life Settlement Conference concluded its full day of sessions with an eye on a future ripe for increased demand suggesting that the rebound is already in progress. "We are at a tipping point in the market! Investors are waking up to a real opportunity," says Russel Dorsett, President of LISA.

The Spring Life Settlement Conference will feature experts who will discuss why investors should be in this enduring asset class and how they can ride this resurgence in the settlement market.

"As investors begin to revisit life settlements as a viable alternative that offers attractive, uncorrelated investment returns, they need the information and access to experts that our annual conference provides," says Darwin Bayston, Executive Director of the Life Insurance Settlement Association based in Orlando, Fla. LISA is the premier settlement association, representing over 80 percent of all life settlement business licensees. LISA members hold over 750 provider life settlement licenses nationwide.

"The conference will also provide ample opportunity for investors to meet and build business contacts in a collegial setting with members of the life settlement industry," Will Menezes, LISA's Business Manager notes.

The event will kick off with the industry's largest networking reception on May 4th, followed by two days of sessions examining life settlements, its components and attributes, trends, industry practices among other pressing topics. Keynote Speakers US. Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. and James J. Donelon, Louisiana Insurance Commissioner and Vice President of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, will take center stage on the first day of sessions.
