The investment manager has considered the reasoning behind the success and failure of some life settlements portfolios.
Investing in Life Settlements is quite bluntly not as simple as buying the asset, putting it in the bottom drawer of a filing cabinet and sitting back to wait for your windfall profits. In fact it requires both a deep understanding of life insurance and a disciplined fund management approach to acquisition and asset selection. In the asset selection process alone there is both a need in equal measure, for quantitative analysis as well as insightful asset due diligence.
