Unprecedented technology investment heralds new era in scaleable Life Policy Acquisition

Huge opportunities now exist for Institutions interested in creating white labeling partnerships in Life Settlements.

SL Investment Management (SL), one of the oldest established and largest full-service Life Settlement product providers outside of the US, has unveiled market leading end to end business process management software. This substantial six figure investment opens up substantial opportunities for financial institutions wishing to partner to enter the Life Settlements sector with an established and experienced fund manager such as SL.

As an asset class, Life Settlements can offer steady returns of typically 8-10%. Fundamental to achieving these returns is the selection of the right manager with a tried and trusted methodology of policy pricing, due diligence and acquisition.  However the policy buying process and the sophisticated due diligence involved has traditionally been very labour intensive for actuarial and administration teams. SL have been working with ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) to refine the new business process management  software and can report;

  1. Efficiency savings in policy valuation and bidding capacity of 87%
  2. increased business scalability,
  3. enhanced due diligence capabilities

As a result of this business re-engineering, SL have won global online business process management software provider, APPIAN's, prestigious International Application Award winner status for 2009. Jeremy Brettell, Chief Executive, commented:

"Life Settlements as an asset class is coming of age. Our new business process management process software delivers a step change for SL Investment Management and makes us the sector's pre-eminent technology pathfinder. We are now ideally placed to satisfy the huge interest in Life Settlements coming from the institutional investment community and lead the next growth phase of the asset class. We can now offer a full range of both management and administration solutions"
