Life Settlement Index Recap - October 2011 Data

The results of the Amrita Life Settlement Index were released at 10AM EST on Tuesday November 1st. The Index remained unchanged at 978.5 points. The flat index followed two months of declines as the ALSI previously marked reduced demand for life insurance policies on the secondary market August and September.

Many were expecting demand to continue to wane following high profile exits of institutional buyers and announcements of reduced buying appetite from established market participants in the third quarter. However, respondents noted a decline in policy supply during the month of October. Consequently active buyers reported the number of offers tendered and closed cases declined.

In contrast, respondents reported a more aggressive disposition for future demand. In addition, buying parameters were largely unchanged, with a slight bias towards a broadening provider buy boxes.
