This is a good time for investors to acquire life settlements at very aggressive rates, according to Mickelson Capital Consulting Inc. in a market commentary.
The San Diego registered investment advisory company is active in the life settlement market.
The firm attributes its upbeat projection to several factors.
The fallout from the financial crisis in late 2008 caused capital to evaporate at major institutions while banks tried to shore up balance sheets, and this reduced purchase of life settlements, says Mickelson.
More recently, average life expectancy projections increased, impacting calculation of investment returns for settlements, the firm says.
