We at BVZL hope that you are doing well and getting back to normal.

The pandemic seems to have cleared but for safety reasons we would like to hold our annual conference via a Webinar again and invite you to join us September 14th, 2021.

The topic to be presented and discussed will be:

New Litigation in the US Life Settlement Market:

  • Orrick represents two members in a COI case against John Hancock – an update on what that means to other market players.
  • Sklaver is doing some out of the box proactive lawsuits – discussion about the forecasted outcomes of these suits.

    Please join us virtually for a lively discussion on these issues, plus updates on the German and US Markets as we seek to promote the exchange of ideas to further the knowledge within our space.

    This event is free of charge and will approximately last 2 hours. We encourage you to join us for this online event and take advantage of sharing ideas or learning something new.


    Stay safe!

    BVZL-ELSA International Life Settlement Conference 2018

    24 September 2018, Künstlerhaus am Lenbachplatz, Munich

    Also this year BVZL and ELSA held a joint conference on the topic of international life insurance secondary and tertiary markets. On 24 September 2018, more than 60 market participants and interested parties met for the largest and most important European event in this field. In Munich’s Kuenstlerhaus on Lenbachplatz, they listened to top-class presentations and panel discussions on trends in life expectancy assessments, regulatory changes in the USA and the run-off problem in the German life insurance market. The conference was followed by an Oktoberfest event, which was as always a highlight for all guests.
