NU Online News Service, July 16, 1:45 p.m. – Highland Capital Holding Corp., Birmingham, Ala., has picked Coventry First L.L.C., Fort Washington, Pa., to appraise life insurance policies for Highland clients.

In some cases, when clients have health problems, Coventry First will help clients convert the policies into cash by selling the rights to the death benefits, Highland says.

Highland contends that an evaluation of the cash surrender value and the resale value of life insurance coverage should be part of the routine, periodic assessment of an individual’s wealth.
