Global Insurance Settlements Funds PLC is a purpose-built investment structure designed to give investors access to the secondary life insurance market also known as life settlements.
Currently, the first sub-fund is called the GIS General Fund.
GIS General Fund (“the Fund”) holds a stable and widely diversified portfolio of USA originated Life Settlement Policies. The Fund’s objective is to Buy and Hold to Maturity (ie. Not Trade) a diversified portfolio of Life Settlements Policies. The portfolio was structured with rigorous selection and due diligence process which include among other things, “stress testing” a policy’s susceptibility to LE extension
By examining the GIS General Fund, it would appear that the best times are yet to come. Our view is that investors coming into the Fund now will enjoy benefits in the coming years as the rate of maturities will exceed the preceding year as the portfolio moves through the cycle.
