The secondary life insurance industry, life settlements, can be an irate beast to both investors and asset managers. We see this in the litter of negative headlines exposing illegal behaviour and incompetence’s of some asset manager. But as the industry grows and matures we see investor’s succeed and asset managers prolong their existence. Asset managers are continually adapting to the changing regulations and valuations and a bright future is ahead for the asset class.
Some investors see multi-asset managers, with numerous fund options, as highly experienced and others may feel that boutique managers with a single focus have boundless experience and are capable to significant success. One team might do a great job, and one team might not. Varying traits may be the cause of this but individual personnel experience has a key role to play.
The industry has unfortunately been characterised by frequent business entity changes and staff turnover within organisations. In contrast GISF’s underlying managers have each been in unbroken business for over 10 years with low staff turnover.
This piece will introduce you to the key personnel involved in the everyday management of Global Insurance Settlements Funds PLC (GISF). Reviewing their experiences and sharing what they have learned managing this alternative investment. In addition to the management below the company has three non-executive directors, two of whom are independent directors.
