European Life Settlement Association Summit
22 Sep 2011
Institute of Directors, Pall Mall, London

The ELSA Summit will give key stakeholders in the Life Settlement market, including investors, pension funds, hedge funds, legal and financial advisers an opportunity to learn first-hand from participants in the market the value of this asset class. Speakers include Professor Dr. Markus C. Kerber from the Technical University of Berlin, Professor David Blake from the Cass Business School and Sam Rosenfeld of Carolus Capital Advisors.

International players in the market will discuss the fast changing global scene of investments. The Dodd Frank Act USA, Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive EU, and FSA’s Discussion Paper 11/1 UK, influence and affect European investors. Other sessions will examine such crucial issues as longevity analysis, transparency and questions of image and reputation. The ELSA Code of Practice and the need to protect investors will be at the core of discussions.
