There is a general lack of knowledge on the part of policy owners about life settlements that leave them vulnerable to opportunistic institutional investors if they lack proper representation from their advisor/advisory team. This intermediate level program will provide a thorough exploration of life settlement case studies and best practices with the necessary procedures to help mitigate risk and provide unexpected value and protection to their clients.
