    09:35-10:20Discussion Panel

    Life Expectancies and How They Are Used.

    The cornerstone of policy and portfolio valuation is appropriately modelling longevity risk. Our first panel of the day will discuss the intricacies of utilising third-party produced life expectancy reports, in-house expertise, and how to most effectively marry the two.

    10:20-11:00Discussion Panel

    Life Risk’s Place in Investor Portfolios.

    Liquidity and underlying asset class diversification requirements means that alternative asset managers often compete against each other for a thin slither of institutional investors’ alternatives allocation. Our second panel discusses the challenges this brings to the life risk markets and how – and if – life risk-based assets can compete for a more permanent portfolio allocation.

    What can we really expect from industry market data efforts?

    A request to share market data often receives a hard ‘no’ from asset managers due to competitive concerns. However, few would argue that collaborative efforts to answer some basic market questions would be a significant benefit for all. Our panel discusses industry ambitions in this area and aims to shed more light on some of the opaque aspects of the life settlement industry.

    The New Economic Environment

    As we leave the post pandemic world, any remaining expectations that the global economic environment would return to normal are now shattered. Rising inflation, subsequent interest rate increases and global events are having far reaching consequences. This panel looks at what is likely to happen in the short term, expectations for the medium term and its impact on like risk markets.

    The Supply of Life Settlement Risk – Buying Big or Small

    Investors looking to access the life settlement market today have a variety of channels of supply. From smaller face value policies in the direct to consumer market, through to large block trades in the tertiary market, the broad range of options afforded to investors in turn allows for flexibility in portfolio construction. Simon Erritt of Coventry Capital and Phil Hall of Longevity Holdings discuss this dynamic.
