European Investors are interested in the emerging life settlement market. Americans affiliated with the Life Insurance Settlement Association, the industry’s leading trade group, want those investors to know the facts. In an increasingly uncertain world, the benefits of life settlements for investors, and the risks must be clearly understood.
America’s LISA joins forces with Europe’s ELSA to present a multi-national, fact filled trade mission to Europe starting on February 23rd, 2010. In a coordinated overseas effort, participants will meet with interested investors in three nations. European investors with multinational interests will also present their views. Local interested investors will attend at each locale.
The Trade Mission will set a new standard for accuracy of information and a realistic presentation of the challenges and opportunities in the life settlement marketplace.
This is the best opportunity for reputable participants in LISA and ELSA to showcase the life settlement product to premier audiences of interested European investors with extensive opportunity for exchange of views and contact with those entities serious about the market and its long term development.
