Life Settlement Industry Report – 2018
The dynamic nature of the life settlement market guided the creation of a comprehensive 2018 Life Settlement Industry Report. To present the landscape of the life settlement market as a whole, this report relies on growth data over the past four years as well as the increasingly competitive nature of the industry. A thorough discussion of the three types of risk associated with life settlements helps flesh out the portrait of the settlement market, and a summary of trends in the industry casts an eye toward the promising future of the industry.
Among the key findings in the industry report:
- The growth of the life settlement industry has surpassed the predictions of forecasters. Whereas a 2016 Conning report projected an annual growth of 1 to 2 percent, the market has actually grown an average of 34 percent over the past few years.
- With an aging population and lengthening life spans, retirement costs and the prohibitive price of long-term care necessitate options like the life settlement that can increase a senior’s disposable income.
- Many people in their retirement years struggle with monthly expenses but hold wealth in non-liquid assets like a house, land, securities or a life insurance policy. When an insurance policy is no longer serving their needs, it can be converted into cash flow through a cash settlement to ease the retirement burden.
