Life Settlements are a rapidly growing investment vehicle. If you are not familiar with life settlements as an asset class, see “What is a Life Settlement Investment.”
Why do wealthy investors, investment bankers, and others buy life settlement contracts?
When you purchase a life settlement, you choose the contract. Similar to picking out a house when investing in real estate. You choose the profile of the insured.
Do you want to buy a policy on a younger individual, maybe age 65? These policies can be inexpensive, however, there will be a longer holding period until the policy matures. As a result, once the policy matures, the investor receives the profit. Do you want to invest in a policy of an older individual, maybe 85? These policies will be more expensive. However, they could have a shorter maturity time.
The companies that aggregate the policies provide a relatively extensive review of the health status of the insured. Does the person have high blood pressure? Are they overweight? Do they have a heart condition? They are looking to disclose any matters that could affect the life expectancy of the insured.
