SLS Assets and Non-correlation

A SLS refers to the sale of an existing life insurance policy to a third party for a cash payment. Such a payment will be in excess of the policy’s surrender value, but less than its face value. After the sale, the purchaser becomes the policy’s beneficiary and assumes payment of its premiums. There are many reasons why policy holders may choose to sell their life insurance policies and sales are usually only undertaken when the insured person doesn’t have a known life-threatening illness. The SLS provides individuals with policies the option to realise value from an asset under a regulated transaction. As a longevity asset, the SLS is non-correlated to the real estate, equity capital and commodity markets. Its value is a function of time because as time passes the value gets closer to the face value of the policy. Hence creating a steady increase in the net asset value of the investment. This makes it highly attractive to investors wishing to counteract volatility within an investment portfolio and add yield.

Note: The Company only advises on and manages SLS Assets that originate in the USA where the SLS market is highly regulated.
