For investors seeking an uncorrelated alternative investment with low volatility and predictable returns, we believe there are few investments that deliver on this profile as well as life settlements.
Life settlements are investment vehicles where investors purchase life insurance policies on seniors with a life expectancy of 3 to 15 years for an amount higher than cash surrender value and less than the policy face amount. Investors receive a return based upon the price paid for the policy (inclusive of premiums) and the death benefit received.
Types of Life Settlements:
Viatical Settlements: a situation where the insured has a life expectancy of <2 years.
Life Settlements: a situation where the insured has a life expectancy of <20 years.
Transactions of Life Settlements:
Direct Purchases: require a large outlay of cash with expertise to buy the right policies.
Direct Fractional: larger policies are divided into smaller portions and sold individually to investors.
Life Settlements PE Fund: involves purchases of portions of a fund comprised of hundreds of policies.
Hedge Fund (open-end).
Private Equity Fund (closed-ended).
Hybrid Structure: mix of Hedge Fund and Private Equity Structure.
