ELSA/BVZL Announce International Life Settlement Investor Conference2015
ELSA and BVZL announce today preliminary details of their second joint International Life Settlement Investor Conference which will take place on Tuesday October 6th in London. Registration is now open and early booking is recommended with "super early bird" discounts available till the end of June.
The conference will highlight important issues facing existing and potential investors in life settlements. These include the latest research on valuation and pricing of funds, current regulatory issues including FATCA and AIFM, investor and lender perspectives, and alternative investments including life contingent structured settlements.
A key session will be devoted to the secondary annuity market highlighting the opportunities provided by recent UK legislation allowing annuity holders to cash in their savings. Leading political, industry and research experts will participate in six sessions to be hosted at the London offices of EY (Ernst & Young). Following the conference there will be a Thames river boat cruise, dinner and entertainment for delegates. There will be a BVZL members meeting on Wednesday 7th October.
Full details of the programme and speakers will be announced in June and publicised in association with The Deal’s Life Settlements Report.
Simon Erritt, Chair of ELSA said: "ELSA's second joint conference with BVZL will be an important European investor event. Pension funds, hedge funds and other sophisticated investors will have an opportunity to be briefed on the risks and rewards of life settlements as an asset class at a time of low interest rates and volatile markets. This event is likely to be well attended so early booking is recommended."
Christian Seidl, board member of BVZL said: "We are all positive that with this year’s conference we can continue the success of the 2014 joint summit in Munich. I personally look very much forward to the large number of interesting presentations and panel discussions scheduled as well as the valuable opportunity for networking and an intensive exchange of ideas."
The conference is being hosted by EY (Ernst & Young) at their London offices, 1 More London Place, London SE1 2AF.
