At the same time,global stock volatility is intensifying the need to diversify with an uncorrelated asset. Lifesettlements, it seems, have never been such a great investment. It isn’t all roses, however. Following the life expectancy revision in 2008, many investors lost moneyon their portfolios and there remains widespread uncertainty regarding LEs currently in place. Canthe new LEs be trusted? Will they too be revised upwards in the next few years? What caninvestors do to guard against that extension risk? Furthermore, the environment for investing in lifesettlements grows increasingly more complicated with new tax rulings, regulatory changes and alack of nationwide consensus on the definition of “insurable interest”. The opportunities are real,but the complexity is real too. Taking place in New York City from September 30th – October 1st, IQPC’s 2nd Life Settlements &Longevity Summit has been specifically designed to help you – the investor – make sense of theopportunities and pitfalls of this exciting investment class. Whether you’re an experienced investor– keen to maximize your existing investment – or new to the market and still evaluating thesuitability of the asset class, this conference delivers invaluable insights from investors, fundmanagers and industry experts, ensuring you make the best possible decisions for superior returns. • Confused about the regulatory environment for life settlements?Then don’t miss our Insurance Commissioners’ Roundtable, bringing together Mike Kreidler ofWashington State, Thomas Hampton of Washington DC, Joel Ario of Pennsylvania andRalph Tyler of Maryland, in an extended panel discussion on the development of regulatoryattitudes towards investments in the secondary market.

Call Dhaval Thakur @ +1-416-597-4754 or Email : Main Conference Day 2 Thursday, October 1, 2009 11:50 Medical Life Expectancy Debate - The Future of Human Longevity Is Radical Human Lifespan Extension Within Our Grasp? Dr. Aubrey De Grey Chairman & Founder Methuselah Foundation Dr. Jay Olshanksy Professor of Epidemiology University of Illinois at Chicago VS YES “Aging is the lifelong accumulation of bodily damage. Its immense complexity focuses gerontologists on modest medical goals: essentially, optimizing our natural anti-aging defenses. Skeptics like Jay neglect the burgeoning field of regenerative medicine, which promises repair of bodily damage, and which could therefore postpone aging indefinitely. In fact, experts in all relevant strands of regenerative medicine now aim to treat aging - despite what Jay says! I thus estimate a 50% chance of radical life extension arriving in 25-30 years. Moreover, corresponding results in mice could occur within ten years, which will alter public expectations and force dramatic changes in policy.” NO Radical life extension is not going to happen (if it ever happens) in time to influence any of the investment decisions made by those involved with life settlements or insurance linked securities. Nothing in gerontology even comes close to fulfilling the promise of dramatically extended human lifespans – despite what Aubrey says! However, anyone interested in investing in life settlements should develop a sound understanding of the biological and demographic dynamics that drive mortality trends at older ages. Attending this debate will deepen your understanding of the factors that affect longevity, and may make you a smarter investor. 1:00 Networking Lunch & End of Main Conference

Call Dhaval Thakur @ +1-416-597-4754 or Email : dhaval.thakur@iqpc.com6 Post Conference Workshops Thursday, October 1, 2009 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm (Registration at 1:45 pm) In spite of the significant opportunities in the life settlements space, investments in the asset class remain complicated and there are significant pitfalls for investors who don’t conduct the right due diligence, actuarial, and economic analyses before purchasing. If you’re evaluating the marketplace, but have yet to allocate capital, this extended workshop is for you. You’ll walk away with practical strategies for safeguarding your life settlements portfolio and significantly enhancing the security of your investment. What You Will Learn: • Understand the importance of achieving financial and legal protection for your investment • Utilize water-tight due diligence processes to ensure pristine policy origination and eliminate the possibility of future contestability issues • Stochastically simulate portfolio performance to determine best and worst case scenarios • Understand how to make use of both primary and secondary LE analysis How You Will Benefit: • Achieve confidence in portfolio pricing by making a more thorough analysis • Negotiate more effectively with third parties, and achieve more favorable pricing arrangements • Reduce contestability issues by sourcing clean, uncompromised policies Workshop Leader to be announced – Call Dhaval Thakur @ +1-416-597-4754 or Email : “Immunizing” the Secondary Market Buyer: The 5 Things You MUST Do Before Buying a Life Settlements Portfolio A 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm (Registration at 3:45 pm) The normal strategy for investing in the secondary market is to purchase a ready-made portfolio of life settlements. While purchasing an existing pool of insurance policies may appear to be a quick way for fund managers to enter the market, there is also an alternative view: namely that the time and energy needed to perform the proper due diligence on an existing portfolio of policies is better allocated to building a new portfolio from scratch. What You Will Learn: • Weigh up due diligence activity on an existing life settlements portfolio with the time needed to create a customized portfolio: Where is your time better spent? • Define the parameters of your portfolio: Align risk, price and volatility factors with your overall investment strategy • Select between LE market segments: 2-4 year LEs vs. 12 years+ • Examining the mechanics of life settlement aggregation: Painless strategies for producing a transparent, optimized portfolio How You Will Benefit: • Invest in life settlements without due diligence headaches • Determine the characteristics of your portfolio in advance • Design a life settlements portfolio that better suits your overall investment strategy Workshop Leader to be announced – Call Dhaval Thakur @ +1-416-597-4754 or Email : Custom-Building a Life Settlements Portfolio: Leveraging the Latest Policy Aggregation Techniques to Construct a Bespoke Portfolio with Pre-Determined Size, Risk, and Performance Attributes B "Investors are attracted to life settlements because insurance is seen as a noncorrelated alternative asset. Life settlements provide noncorrelated diversification because insurance policies are independent of the factors contributing to economic downturns, such as interest rate fluctuations and increasing fuel cost. As a result, life settlements are one way to reduce a portfolio's exposure to sudden downturns in the stock and bond markets," – Conning Research & Consulting “Experts predict explosive growth in life settlements over the next decade as a result of increasing amounts of institutional capital being pumped into the system as well as a growing demographic of elderly, well-off individuals to ensure a generous supply of life insurance policies.” – Nuwire Investor Magazine
