Legal and Regulatory Status of the Life Settlements Industry

Properly advise your clients with an understanding of the life insurance industry and federal legislation.

Every year over $200 billion of life insurance policies lapse or get surrendered that could have been sold, which puts insureds in a bad financial position. Many fiduciaries to those families had no idea they could have helped their clients sell the policy instead of taking pennies on the dollar from the insurance carriers. This lack of understanding about life insurance resale value leaves both families and fiduciaries in a terrible situation that could have been avoided with education. This course will help the persons responsible for guiding fiduciary decisions for a family make the best decision on what consumers with a life insurance policy should do with that asset to leave them in the best financial position possible. By understanding the regulatory landscape, financial analysis, tax implications, and best underwriting practices, financial planners can set their clients up for success and preserve wealth.
