November 8th -- Life Settlement Insider Workshop for Sophisticated Investors

Registration Is Complimentary but Space Is Limited

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - October 15, 2009) - The life settlement market is now ten years old and the news is out! In recent months, the secondary market for life insurance has been the topic of articles and programs such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and ABC Nightly News among others. With this heightened awareness, consumers are reevaluating their financial choices and investors are taking a closer look at an increasingly attractive asset class.

In the wake of AIG's $8.4 billion securitization and multiple federal hearings on life settlements, the need for a better informed investor community has never been greater. On November 8th, the Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) presents an opportunity for qualified investors to receive an insider's perspective on life settlement investing. Next month in New York City, LISA will kick off their 15th Annual Life Settlement Fall Conference with a Life Settlement Investor Workshop. LISA's Life Settlement Investor Workshop will present essential perspectives on this rapidly expanding non-correlated market to qualified investors.
