Insurance Studies Institute (ISI) is pleased to release Part III of a three part series, “Alternative Risk Transfer: The Convergence of the Insurance and Capital Markets.”

Part III, entitled “Utilization of Life Insurance-Linked Securities,” investigates how individuals, financial entities and government agencies manage longevity/mortality risks, and how the capital markets  -  via life insurance-linked securities –  have helped to revolutionize risk management techniques.

Part I of this series provided a macro-level analysis of the insurance-linked security asset class, and Part II took an in-depth look at the non-life insurance-linked security sector.  Together, the three parts of this research series examine how the coalescence of the insurance and capital markets has produced an array of innovative risk management tools that allow for the hedging of risks that were previously thought to be uninsurable.

Winning the War of Words: How the Life Settlements Industry Can Solve its Messaging Problem

July 14th, 2010 • 4.00pm – 6.30pm • The Fairmont Southampton, Bermuda • 8th Insurance Linked Securities Summit

The life settlements industry is getting much more serious about taking back the publicity battle that has been raging since the publication of that now infamous New York Times article some six months ago. A recent trade mission to Europe exemplified this new direction, showing the importance now placed on open, clear communication with investors and the insistence on high industry standards. But it is clear that much still needs to be done to improve industry messaging and reclaim the initiative from those who seek to disparage and discredit the industry. The Insurance Studies Institute has been active in furthering these initiatives, and in this key workshop Christopher Kampa – Director of Research – will explore some of most important areas for industry participants in the upcoming publicity struggle.

What you will learn:

  • Examining the way life settlements have been portrayed in the media over the past 12 months
  • Identifying the critical components of a more successful messaging strategy: honesty, transparency, statistically significant data
  • How to position the industry’s good stories in a way to rebalance the perception of the asset class in the media

How you will benefit:

  • Get the facts needed to engage more effectively with media outlets and reporters
  • Determine the most effective strategies needed to deal with sleaze, fraud, and a few “bad apples”
  • Winning the PR battle: How the life settlements industry can reclaim the initiative in the media
