From the Back Cover:

LIFE MARKETS

As the Baby Boomer population continues to age and the need for the securitization of life insurance policies increases, more financial institutions are looking towards longevity and mortality risk trading as a solution. There is a pressing need for innovative financial products and strategies that have the ability to hedge longevity exposure for pension funds, reinsurance companies, and governments. To fill this growing demand in the financial marketplace, products and strategies are being developed with the use of life settlements and linked securities.

Written for professional traders and institutional investors, Life Markets offers a comprehensive guide to the growing field of life settlements and linked securities. Life settlements offer innovative financial interactions for elderly individuals who sell their insurance policies to investors for a percentage of the coverage amount—which is greater than the cash surrender value offered by the insurance company that wrote the policy. Given today's volatile stock market, investors are finding life settlements and other related securities to be a safe haven that guarantees them solid returns and a stable financial future.

With Life Markets, internationally acclaimed expert Vishaal Bhuyan and a team of coauthors from leading financial institutions, hedge funds, actuarial firms, law firms, and universities provide a complete analysis of the life settlement market and show you how to trade with confidence in this burgeoning market. Comprehensive in scope, Life Markets covers a wealth of material touching on everything from the history of life settlements to making a transaction—pricing, service providers, and exchanges. The book also explores regulatory issues and insurance company reaction, tax implications, and examines the ethical issues surrounding profiting from mortality.

Life Markets is the just-in-time resource that examines the myriad of issues surrounding longevity finance for anyone considering entering this dynamic market.
