What others have to say about the Life Settlements Series

“Informative, well put-on, and great networking!”
- Matthew Browndorf, Founder & CIO, Browndorf PEM
"For investors interesting in life settlements, there are exciting opportunities but a number of pitfalls too that can catch the unwary. Attending IQPC's Life Settlements conference is a great way to make sense of this promising uncorrelated, yet challenging asset class."
- Christopher McGlashan, Special Counsel, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, LLP
